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.”
You can purchase Poetic and Artistic Licenses and learn more about Kenspeckle Letterpress at their website. Want to explore more “found” items in my collection? Click here.
