The poems of Nikki Sheppy’s Grrrrlhood politely shove briquettes into the lungs of readers, so that they can breathe purr and radicle. Its Pataphysics of organelles plus disinfectant plus medulla minus stage blood ferociously uncalculates a gendared ado-less-cents… and now, every alpha wishes it was a theta! A simply and completely reminiscularferaleludic experience.
Type set in Monotype Bembo and printed on Crane Lettra papers, then sewn and bound into a flyleaf and wrapper of Fabriano Tiziano.
The production team from ENGL205 included: Daymian Allin, Kira Carson, Cady Corman, Paige Derby, Marina Fehr, Jessica Hamilton, Angela Heidt, Shanice Reid, Steve Russell, & Jason Dewinetz.
