i am starting a series, of what will be, five self published books              (poetry, journals, memoir, prose, notes)

all books will hand sewn on hand made letter pressed paper in an edition of 100 with the first 25 being signed numbered and containing and original painting.

each book will be different size and page count with a different style painting (oil bar, ink, spray, water colour, abstract)

the first of these books will be of 20 poems and will measure roughly 7 and 1/2 inches square in an edition of 100 with the first 25 being signed, numbered containing an original oil bar painting by me.

when this book gets funded, it will take roughly two months to print, paint and sew and then can be purchased

many thanks,

fitschen

If I look out 

Far enough Into the distance 

From where I am standing 

Right now 

I might be able 

To see myself

Never coming back 

Which would be 

Fine with me

                                            Untitled #2

You tell me 

That you love me 

As I feel my heart 

Break into pieces 

I don’t know what to do 

When you say things like that 

To me I have been told the truth 

Too many times 

And it’s never 

Worked out
