Poetry Package by Hosho McCreesh

.

It’s a rare treat nowadays if I happen to have a few bucks in my pocket to spend on luxuries.  When I do, I always buy a book.  If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know that I’m a big fan of Propaganda Press, because their poetry chaps are awesome, and the prices are low.   Even a broke ass hick like me can buy when payday rolls around.  That’s what I call poetry for the people.

.

Here’s my latest treasure from Propaganda Press–a Deluxe Poetry Package featuring the work of Hosho McCreesh.

.

Hosho McCreesh is an excellent poet and artist.  He’s one of those poets whose work I order without hesitation if I have any money.  I was especially happy to find out that in addition to his newest chapbook, I could order a package that contains “extra goodies.”  Yep, that’s a picture of it above.  I felt like a kid in a candy store when my copies arrived this week.  Here’s everything that comes in the package:

.

* A 92 page chapbook (1/4 page size):   An Adamant, Unmitigated Hope Even Amidst The Doom… by Hosho McCreesh. The cover art is by Sean Lynch of Ten Point Design and wraps around both front and back covers.

*A powerful broadside poem signed by Hosho McCreesh.

*A small (2 1/4″ x 2 3/4″) pocket book, 4th Street Vagaries by Hosho McCreesh, filled with  poems and photographs.  I love the small pocket books, and this one is…I’m trying to think of a better word than awesome to describe it.

*A magnet that is a laser-printed full-color reproduction of original watercolors by Hosho McCreesh, Winter on 4th Street.  Set of 26 designs, each unique and featuring a different poem from 4th Street Vagaries.

Now, how cool is that?  A magnet with a poem on it!

*Bonus chapbooks…and the bonus books are so good that I’ll be coming back to tell you more about them, too.  The bonus books included in each package are by various authors and possibly for a limited time.

.

Of course, I love it all.  An Adamant, Unmitigated Hope Even Amidst the Doom… contains poems that tell the stories and ask the questions that every human being should ask.  It is real–the darkness, the light, the struggle to survive.  The form of the poems is beautiful, and the writing is accessible to all readers.

.

The price for the total package is $10.00 plus shipping and handling (I think it was thirteen bucks total).  The copies are also going extremely fast.  So if you’re thinking of ordering, don’t wait.

The package can be ordered HERE.   You can also view more pictures of the package HERE.

.

Check out interviews and more work by Hosho at one of my favorite sites, the outlaw poetry network.

.

A review and sample poems can also be found at Poet Hound, which is another one of my favorite places to find good poetry.

.

Now, I’ll quit yakking for two seconds, so you can go see it all for yourself.  It’s worth way more than the low price.

And, as always, thanks for reading!
