Our catalogs are designed to inspire purchases. Our Catalog 255 did not prompt an order from John Crichton of Brick Row Bookshop. It precipitated poetry!
We’ve been clerihewed:
Little is to be found in Masi’s new Mix
of high spots or fancy books with pretty color pics
Only pamphlets, ephemera and broadsides
on advertising, arboriculture, cooking, textiles, wood, sex and seduction
prefaced by the always exhilarating and poetic introduction.
cler·i·hew/ˈklerəˌhyo͞o/noun: clerihew; plural noun: clerihews
