Jesse Seldess recently relocated from Chicago to Berlin. In Chicago, he co-curated The Discrete Reading and Performance Series with Kerri Sonnenberg. In Berlin, he organizes The Floating Series of exhibitions and events with Leonie Weber as well as continues to edit Antennae, a journal of experimental writing, music, and performance. Chapbooks of his poems have been published by Answer Tag Home Press, Bronze Skull Press, and the Chicago Poetry Project, and his first full-length book of poems, Who Opens, appeared on Kenning Editions earlier this year.
This broadside was designed and letterpress printed by the Dexterity Press in an edition of 100 to commemorate a reading by the authors at the Enemy Rumor Reading Series in Milwaukee, WI.
Although this chapbook is sold out, the content can be found in Jesse's full-length book, Who Opens, available from Small Press Distribution.
This poem was letterpress printed at the University of Wisconsin in the autumn of 2003. The type is Palatino, the papers vary. Approximately 30 copies were issued.
