In addition to traditional poetry collections and chapbooks, independent press YesYes Books also publishes a number of experimental and multimedia works, many of which incorporate visual art. Since its founding in 2011, the press's innovative projects have included Poetry Shots, fully illustrated digital chapbooks; and Frequencies, Volume One, a poetry and contemporary music anthology. The Bones of Us, a graphic poetry collection by J. Bradley with art by Adam Scott Mazer, will be released in February. The following images highlight a selection of both past and forthcoming experimental projects from YesYes Books.

    Poetry Shots: American Poem

    In The Blue Teratorn, released as part of the Poetry Shots series in 2012, Dorothea Lasky’s poems are illustrated by Kaori Mitsushima. In a post on her blog, Lasky describes this digital chapbook as "a flock of scary birds" meant to accompany her third full-length collection, Thunderbird, published in 2012 by Wave Books.

    The Bones of Us: A Letter to a Wedding Photo That's Not Mine

    For the graphic poetry collection The Bones of Us, artist Adam Scott Mazer illustrated J. Bradley's poems first in pencil, then overlaid in ink applied with a brush. In the poem "A Letter to a Wedding Photo That's Not Mine," Bradley writes, "May you never need / to throw your memories / out an airlock, watch / as they turn blue."

    The Bones of Us: Cosmonaut

    In "Cosmonaut," Bradley describes a house as "a pulmonary system of pocket universes" where "we lose ourselves in the vacuum of Auto-Tune, drift toward the outer rims of conversations and plastic Dixie Cups." He writes, "In the morning, we will smack our lips, ruin the cotton in our cheeks; our heads are capsules with cracks in the seams."

    The Bones of Us: Yale Street

    Mazer's illustrations provided inspiration for many of the revisions that J. Bradley made to his poems. In "Yale Street," Bradley writes, "When we traded electric currents through the tips of our noses, revenge evaporated from my body. I clutched your hip like the handle of a hammer, a box of nails; you are a home worth building."

Burner is that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb
herself down. By day, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances
gogo. Inspired by fellow revolutionaries from John Lennon to Virginia
Woolf, she's a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent. The
Burner girl gets hot and bothered by the Marquis de Lafayette, aspires
to redefine the zeitgeist like Nietzsche, and provokes thought like
Margaret Atwood.

Editorial Focus: 

TRol is an international magazine run by writers for civilized readers. We offer:

● The best fiction we can find from anywhere
● The usual mix of memoirs, Archives, poetry (in moderate doses)
● Greatly expanded arts coverage
● A Books section which is a reliable guide to reading
● Room for more political comment
● And of course PB's grouchy Notebook

Tips From the Editor: 

In the new TRoL there will be: ● No tedious stories of academic life ● No routine log-rolling mutual admiration from the iniquitous MFA and Workshop factories ● No contributions from those on lists of the “best” such-and-such ● No criticism from critics we don't ever read ● No “Insider” games of praise or blame ● No self-reproducing interns reading submissions
