This broadside is part of the series ‘Giving A Shit, Vol. I’ created by Calgary, AB/St.John’s, NL, letterpress studio Whisky Jack Letterpress, which is run by poet Monica Kidd. She created this series of letterpress broadsides in 2017 to feature, in her words, “original and unpublished poetry, prose or other brief statements on giving a shit — on the value of making things, making community, stopping to care, growing vegetables, why art matters, whatever. […] Each came from someone who made the time to record an idea about why things matter. Each inspired in me a response, and while I have never claimed to be able to predict the outcome of my work, each has a kind of loveliness, and invites a kind of pause.”
