index / limited-edition & handmade books — The Crow and the Queen, My Cellar Doors, Incunabula, Need? Need! Need: Need, Need., My New Criticality and Other Stories..., Permanent Winter
Based only on its sound, cellar door
is said to be the most beautiful two-word phrase in the English language. This book of 15 poems collects my cellar doors. In the last few months, these phrases have appeared in my life: some were gifts from friends, some were attached to me by medical experts and jotted down in my file, some were in the air, and some were just lovely.
Each book contains one poem handwritten on a Salonpas Pain Relieving Patch.
Active ingredients: Camphor 1.2%, Menthol 5.7%, and Methyl salicylate 6.3%.
Limited edition of 100.
Special thanks to Jessica Wen-di Tan, Ali Kheradyar, Elizabeth Sonenberg, and Johannes Beck.
