Thanks to all who attended the launch of Someone Edition’s Little Letterpress #1, Another Poem About Time Written at the Onset of Middle Age by Jay MillAr, artwork by Natalia Moskwa.
Deborah Barnett (producer and designer) and Beatriz Hausner (editor) were thrilled to celebrate the launch of the limited edition chapbook with their friends and family on a beautiful mom’s day afternoon. The day started snacks and mimosas with Natalia Moskwa’s art beautifully lining the walls. People of all different walks of life came through the doors of The Davenport salon that day to celebrate poetry and art.
Beatriz started with an introduction to Someone Editions and its origins. She then introduced Deborah, who spoke of her passion for the project her appreciation for the words of Jay MillAr and her excitement at being able to juxtapose the vital images from Natalia in design for letterpress.
Beatriz then announced the tribute to Jay MillAr in which Marianne Apostolides, Ralph Kolowe and Aaron Tucker read their favourite works from Jay’s extensive body of work. It was a moving tribute to Jay MillAr, a well-known poet and the successful publisher of BookThug.
We continued the celebration of art by enjoying some of Will Theriault’s soulful beats which can be found on Soundcloud @Willisindahouse
