Reset – collage & foto by Smith

Lady K bought half a dozen expensive hard cover 8″ x 6″ notebooks for 50 cents each from a dying bookstore last month. They are high quality products with thick black pages, hard pressed board cover stock and heavy wire binding. She thought they’d be ideal for us to collage. I finally started collaging mine last night with the cover above. Each one has 25 pages which means counting covers, I can do 54 small collages in it.

Lady K also just published her 24th online issue of – this issue has 17 pages consisting of 33 artists and poets, 15 images (some with text), 30 poems, and one review of Yuyutsu RD Sharma’s book of poetry “Amsterdam Spacecake” by a NYC college professor.

In rough order of appearance, this issue’s contributors are: Bro Vic, Cathleen Daly, Geoffrey Landis, Steve Goldberg, Jesus Crisis (aka John Burroughs), Nick Traenkner, Charles Spano, Steve Thomas, Mary Weems, Wednesday Kennedy, J Williams, Max, Jerie Green, George Wallace, Andrew Boerum, Mike Finley, Kimmydbones, Joe Balaz, Mark Kuhar, Christine M. Brooks, Cheryl Townsend, Herbert, Marcus Bales, Heller Levinson, Michael Grover, Jim Lang, Larry Smith, Mary Hughes, Peter Leon, Andrew Boerum, Robert Scotto (with Yuyutsu RD Sharma), Lady K, and yours unruly Steven B. Smith (I got in because I’m sleeping with the publisher).

She’s added a new feature this issue — readers may now leave comments on individual entries.

    Yes! Even though it ain’t about me, I gotta love the collage – would be cool to use in a book (maybe even a cover) some time, if I had the right book. 😉

    This issue of The City might be the best ever – and it’s a pleasure to be included among so many artists/writers whose work I very much enjoy/respect. Also nice to see Yuyu’s Space Cake, a fine book and my favorite of his, reviewed….

    As for the bottom foto – “I guess that’s why they call it the blues.”
