Poetic License-Kenspeckle Letterpress

 

Yesterday, I stopped by the Montague Bookmill (“Books you don’t need in a place you can’t find”) and came across this little number: a Poetic License. The license is the brainchild of Kenspeckle Letterpress in Duluth, Minnesota, which created the item at the request of a friend who wanted a gift for a Poet Laureate.

While it’s tempting to keep the license so I can finally flout “all known rules of grammar” legally, I think I’ll send it to a poet friend, who collects ephemera. Besides, I’m looking to “upgrade” to the Artistic License anyway—it permits “fashion excesses” and “looking at and/or drawing naked people.”

Rachel Perry Welty’s awe-inspiring, fruit-sticker drawings combine a minimalist style with Rachel’s novel use of everyday materials. One lucky $1000 Gwarlingo donor will receive an unframed, one-of-a-kind drawing by Rachel Perry Welty, courtesy the artist and Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York.
