Just One More Jerusalem By Roy Bainton
Paperback: $8.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Poetry through the Tradesman’s Entrance. Just One More Jerusalem is Roy Bainton’s fourth venture into the world of poetry. Usually he’s more at home with non-fiction and history, or... More > the music industry. However, as a political animal he finds much to rail against in 21st century Britain, and often sees verse as the most effective way of expressing this. But between the shafts of anger there’s still room for introspection, reminiscence and even a touch of humour. Bainton has never claimed to be what he calls ‘a bona fide poet’. He’s been designated by those in the literary world who’ve seen and appreciated his work as little more than ‘a jobbing writer’ and as such, he considers his poetry output as simply having ‘access by the tradesman’s entrance’. So forget the front door, go around the back and here you’ll find a belligerent old knife-grinder with an uncompromising muse on his shoulder.< Less

More > wish to begin / the year / with clarity— / my favorite word / next to / epiphany..." It's about friendships, hopes, goals, boys, hair, big words and birthday stars. It is a tribute to Anne Shirley because If Anne were real and alive today, she'd be a kindred spirit. “When I was growing up, Anne of Green Gables was my heroine and role model. Years later, Wesley St. Jo’s collection of poetry describes the joyful “spirit” of Anne of the 21st century. She gives us an ear to the cadence of what is important to her Anne. Her poems capture the optimism, wit, passion, and intelligence that I loved so much about the Anne who I read when I was a young girl.” —Mary Kasimor, author of silk string arias and The Landfill Dancers< Less

250 single page 21st century poems from a writer who refined his approach to poetry during the San Francisco Renaissance of the 1950s and 60s. The book is graced by collages prepared by his daughter... More > who was born then and whose work reflects some homage to her father's then friend, Jess Collins, whose own works gained prominence at that same time. Brown's approach he believes is shaped by his admiration for the poetry of Wallace Stevens, John Berryman and Jack Spicer. From his poem, "Chase Away": "The words Crumby wants have no shape, not fingerprints,/ just mortal meandering that goes from breakfast to supper,/ mentioning a quiver, a slight pain, an excitement, or colors/ that keep the snarling dog at bay, that while away the day." Kevin Killian wrote: "Shake any three poems out of this box of cards, flip them over, get ready to laugh and get ready to feel your consciousness blip to the surface, like bubbles in the best champagne."< Less
NOTHING TO SAY By Dan Holloway
Paperback: $24.10
Prints in 3-5 business days
These pieces, which represent a moment in cultural time, have been chosen because they tackle head-on the glorious complexity of life. No piece is aridly intellectual, no piece one-dimensionally... More > humorous or political or even beautiful. Each work addresses with one strand the myriad issues facing life in the 21st Century and with another a history of thought and culture stretching back into classical times. So from P A Levy’s experimental visual poetry and Andy Harrod’s multimedia and typographical experimentation through Errol McGlashan’s London Lonely, which has been received to rapturous receptions at poetry slams across the UK and Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s deliciously askance retellings of classical myths, each layer of NOTHING TO SAY contributes, like the planes of a cubist masterpiece, not only its own fully-realised presence but a new element of a whole that seeks to release everyone who reads it so they can experience their own lives in their own wonderful voices.< Less

More > researching and realizing new products. It’s been an amazing journey, playing in the birth chambers of mass market multinationals. Nevertheless he’s quite grumpy. Why are so many brilliant ideas culled before they’ve had a chance to shine in the real world? Why are so many awful ideas pushed through the system and launched, only to fail miserably, ruining careers and bankrupting businesses? Why are so many blatantly obvious market opportunities ignored and not fulfilled with the right products, helping people lead happier lives and bringing prosperity to the companies that could have introduced them?

Photography has gone through at least seven revolutions since it began. Each one has occurred at some crucial moment in history and has changed the way we make photographs. The design of the Nikon F4... More > was the basis, the prototype for all DSLR cameras to come. If you use a DSLR at any level, it’s granddad was the F4.

Prints in 3-5 business days
An exploration of Korean Buddhism as practiced in the 21st Century America. Practicing at a Zen center, we begin to realize how our opinions create our problems, by coming between us and the... More > situations we find manifest in our lives. When we have to courage to let go of these opinions, it is possible to live our everyday lives with clarity and harmony. Over time we learn to cooperate, to see clearly, and to accept people and situations as they are, with this our minds become strong and wide. Then it becomes possible to act, in the manner of a Bodhisattva for others with no trace of ourselves. The forms practiced in Zen are designed to help us see our opinions, and our minds that don't pay attention, in each situation that we find ourselves. If we keep a mind that wishes to leave no trace of our passage, these forms fall easily into place. We hope that your training here will help your spiritual growth, and through that help bring about a peaceful world.< Less
