The Holland Times, the Amsterdam-based English language expat monthly, has reviewed the little red booklet in their 2014 January issue. Lots of thanks to Declan Aylward (editor-in-chief) for making this review possible, and to Jonathan Gill (critic) for writing it so tastefully. We are humbled and frenzied by your references to the great masters of the bestiary, and admire the 140 character historic overview you produced on the theme. Dangit!
We hope you are looking forward to a second volume.
Favorite line from HT’s JG: “In these poems, the always-strange proximity of animal wildness and natural savagery […] is an opportunity to explore where homo sapien might belong in the ultimate bestiary.”
You haven’t been hearing from us for a while, now, as we’ve been on a World Tour for the promotion of the little red booklet. Exciting news that you will be hearing more about soon; with pictures! Yet, we will not be posting any new messages here ever again. Mr. Karfield’s first-ever book review (by Jonathan Gill, Holland Times) will not be soon appearing on this blog.
Oh, and also – it’s not April 1st today. (Un)happy Fools’, y’all…
BAYUM! – we have reached the next level in feeding the public “(green) CREATURES”: 50 copies of Mr. Karfield’s first publication have been sold!!! A big thanks for that to the supporters and lovers of poetry out there, who are taking a liking in IG Karfield’s world of fable fantasy.
FYI – there are still 10 copies waiting to be personalized and signed, if you order via the form on this blog. Otherwise, you can hit up either Amazon or Lulu to check your copy.
A fresh batch of books for those who placed a personal(ized) order is being shipped as we speak. And there are 15 MORE booklets that can be ordered in this way. So please invite your friends and family to consider making an order via this website; they will receive a signed and rhymed.
Support your locally global art community. Support the right side of your brain. Support IG Karfield. DO IT NOW!!!
Another happy customer shared a photo showing their copy of the little red booklet. “LOVING IT!” they added. Well, right back at ya! Thanks for your support and enthusiasm.
The copy seen here in the picture is the first little red booklet that was ordered and delivered through Amazon. The person who placed this order seems to be living in NATURE! and had the booklet delivered to them by snail mail. Mr. Karfield has started considering a sequel, immediately after receiving this adorable image.
From here on out, “(green) CREATURES” is available at Amazon.
