Fit to Print / 2015
A letterpress chapbook 
by Barbara Henry, Rosaire Appel and Amanda Deutch
printed and published by Harsimus Press, Jersey City, NJ

Preface: Every morning we wake up and read The New York Times. Shifting through pages where stories are split to fit the layout, we experience more than just an information exchange. Words and images naturally reconfigure, contexts change, the news is malleable rather than static. Our pages here are the result of chance meetings between our imaginations and the printed news.

This book is a visual meditation on split levels by way of pomes. A pome is a dyslectic version of poem – or is it a typographically erroneous home? Either way, the pages consist of drawings and words, lines and letters, a few abstract comics and asemic diagrams. Daily news, unavoidable, slips in behind the scenes.
