This is Baxter. I’m posting this picture of Baxter because I apparently haven’t updated the website in over six months. This isn’t because the Poems-For-All Project has been inactive.

In fact, I have been very busy designing new covers, working on interesting collaborators. I just don’t do a very good job of posting updates to this here website.

I suppose I should add more stuff.

Until then, here’s a picture of my little bunny.


Some covers require several images and the use of Photoshop’s special features to distill them into the final cover. Below is the cover for Scottish poet Josie Neill’s book and the original art (before modifications) I used to make it.

$10 | Six envelopes each containing at least 20 little books sent bi-monthly

I’ve been thinking about doing “subscriptions” to Poems-For-All for a long time as a way to get more of the little books out to folks interested in receiving them.

Because I want the little books of the series to always be free, I feel uncomfortable using the word subscription. Ah, semantics. What you’re really paying for is the postage to send them. You are helping me to defray the costs of postage with your ten bucks. (Thank you.)

If you have questions, please contact me at and I’ll do my best to answer them. I would prefer not to communicate about subscription issues using Facebook. If at all possible, please send me an email.

While not one for new year resolutions, I did think it a good idea to begin 2019 writing here more often (1). “Post every day!” I might have told myself enthusiastically, ignoring all previous failed attempts to do the same. So then, five days into 2019, this first post. Happy new year? (more…)
