Clive gets devilish in D. C.

Note: If you're a blogger and would like to ask one interview question and host a piece in honor of my March 30th book launch, please read the prior post...

If you haven't been following Clive Hicks-Jenkins and his progress on The Soldier's Tale, you might pop over to the Artlog--choose L'Histoire du Soldat from the Topics menu, and you can see a quick evolution. In addition, if you choose Collaborations with Poets, you can take a look at his work on The Foliate Head and see how the title page above came out of his foliate heads.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
