Window reading

Auckland's Parson's Bookshop marked national poetry week by filling its windows with books and chapbooks of verse produced by small presses. I have a somewhat utilitarian approach to books - I'm interested in getting to the contents, and tend to forget about little things like cover design, page layout, illustrations, font choice, and so on - but I was impressed by the artistry on display in the windows of Parson's.

Regular readers of this blog might remember my post about Jack Ross' Papyri: the chapbook was launched by Soapbox Press last year, on a boozy night that almost ended in the evaporation of Richard Taylor.
