Rick Allen: Winter Bees & Other Poems of the Cold

Winter Bees & Other Poems of the Cold

A winter two years in the making—at least for us. Our second book with Joyce Sidman, Marian & Rick worked together to introduce lino block printing to the 21st Century world of digital composing. The result is a book celebrating those of us who thrive in (or at least survive) the 13 months of winter we see here every year in the Very Nearly Far North.
