pots of money
In case you haven’t already become absolutely enchanted with the deep-crafting, ownership-liquidizing, soft-touch-photographic playground that is Etsy.com, here’s a sweet article on its developer, Rob Kalin.
Could Etsy be useful as a model for writing/books? Probably they often lack the prettiness. I searched for “poetry books” and found my way to thelalatheory.com, and this book, and little books like this. There are some
beautiful artist’s books on Etsy, akin to what I’ve found at sites like Book by its Cover, and there are some necklaces with lines from Poe engraved in Bakelite . . .
and we po-people have things like PotLatch Poetry: even better, I think, because it eschews money. A little gift economy never hurt anybody.
