Look at these beautiful volumes, placed for the moment where I keep a signed edition of Yvor Winters's Collected Poems along with some other dear momentos. What you see here are the first hard cover copies of The Fortunes of Poetry in an Age of Unmaking and Some Permanent Things, both now in Second Edition with redesigned cover and dust jacket.
When these books first appeared, in 2014 and 2015, Wiseblood books was a young press and issued volumes only in paper. Wiseblood has grown and flourished in the intervening years and the publisher wanted to issue these volumes from the early list in elegant hard cover editions. Some Permanent Things had already appeared in a second edition, revised and expanded; Fortunes had long been in need of a second edition to make a few corrections, typographical and substantial. Now we have both in a matching set.
I have ordered ten matching sets of these books and would like to offer readers the opportunity to order signed, hard cover sets of these books, for $64 (shipping included). If you are interested, please simply drop me a line using my Contact form on this web site. You can pay by check or by Paypal, and I will get your volumes in the mail within the day.
Thank you, Readers, for your past support and your continued interest in my work in verse and prose.
