If you could only see the beast you’ve made of me
I held it in but now it seems you’ve set it running free
The saints can’t help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallow’d ground

Gentle reminder that Sage is kind of a wild animal, despite her attempts to believe otherwise. Enjoy the shit sketch with a weird color palette that I spent like ten minutes on tops

This week’s staff pick was made by UWM Special Collections Captain Kathryn Weisbeck. She chose Howl: For Carl Solomon by Allen Ginsberg.

The Grabhorn brothers, Robert and Edwin, were students of Bruce Rogers, and established their press in California in 1919. They quickly became “the most distinguished press in California, where they reigned supreme for over forty years.”* In 1966 the Grabhorn brothers teamed up with Andrew Hoyem to revitalize their press, and that partnership continued until the end of their lives. Hoyem inherited the press after their deaths, and in 1974 renamed it Arion Press. 

Howl, published in 1971, comes from the Grabhorn-Hoyem partnership, which was characterized by the publication of artist books and the works of Beat poets. Kathryn chose it for its beautiful design and typography, characteristic of the Grabhorn Press, and the cover design.
