Extra Hidden Life, Among the Days (Wesleyan Poetry) Cover Image
Email or call for price.
ISBN: 9780819578051
Published: Wesleyan University Press - January 16th, 2018

Here is a book of poetry which extends off the page and into the world. In typical Hillman fashion, her poems are as much incantations as they are lyric meditations on the connections between the environment, Capital, the self, trees, lichen and stars. No one more intertwines their praxis and their poetry than Hillman, and this book, her first after the acclaimed “Elemental Quartet,” is a new kind of transcendental work for the Antropocean.

After purchasing a used military printing press, Lorraine and Fredy Perlman, along with a group of friends formed the Detroit Printing Co-op. Of their more notable work, they were the first to print English translation of Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle and worked to create a catalog of zines, books, broadsheets and other ephemere which captured their radical ethos and aesthetic. This book is an indispensable source and history of the Co-op and a beautiful statement on the importance of publishing and printing.

Natural History: A Selection Cover Image
By Pliny the Elder, John F. Healey (Translated by), John F. Healey (Introduction by), John F. Healey (Notes by)
ISBN: 9780140444131
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Penguin Classics - December 3rd, 1991

Written nearly 2000 years ago, this stunning book is a fascinating and illuminating dive into the world of the Romans as they understood it. Pliny worked tirelessly on it, and thankfully it has survived all these years. Though this is just a selection from the much longer manuscript, it contains some of the most interesting and bizarre passages on both the natural and metaphysical world. It’s hard sometimes to imagine that the people of antiquity were as complex and insightful us, but this book provides a unique insight into one of the great minds and historians of the Roman world and offers a window into the astonishing knowledge and myth which comprised the ancient wisdom and learning.
