HELP US GIVE PATRICIA LOCKWOOD A TRAMP STAMP!
Patricia Lockwood’s much anticipated first book of poems, Balloon Pop Outlaw Black, is now available, along with Ben Mirov’s new book Hider Roser, at Octopus Books’ website and Small Press Distribution. In order to promote this book, Patricia has offered to tattoo an “enormous tramp-stamp of a four-legged puppeye with a bare butt” on her lower back if we sell out of the first print run of 2000 books by January 31. Patricia talks about this plan on her blog. Please spread the word, tell your friends and enemies, and help us help her do this bad thing.
This puppeye (pictured above) is from the herd of puppeyes on Patricia’s book cover which was designed and illustrated by Lisa Hanawalt, one of Patricia’s favorite artists, a cartoonist and illustrator living in Brooklyn. Lisa talks about it all here.
