The latest project from local press Curbside Splendor is a bit of a change of pace for the young press. Coming this July is The Chapbook: Poems by Charles Bane, Jr.. The collection promises to be a work of art and a traditional poetry collection in every sense of the word. Chicago native Bane has been published in many places, but this is his first formal collection, and it will feature beautiful illustration from Isabelle Pruneau. Bane's poems are timeless focusing on themes like romance, happiness, and struggle.
The collection is now available for preorder and every order received before May 15th will received a signed copy of the collection.
