This is so fantastic, I read it in one sitting, couldn't put it down! DUSIE chaps almost always rock, but this one rocks pretty freakin' loud! I know it's easy enough to read with the e-chap, but I LOVE this and want to share it anyway:

"As for who killed poetry some experts say it was God

So there is nothing to fear

For we are made in his image-

And what a terrific image he is

A jolly walrus with a long white beard

A koala in his ear"

It's got such a cool blend, moving from information with directives

Meng's book is hand-made by Susana Gardner of Dusie Press, Switzerland, a mystery, inviting hand and eye: it begins with a handmade envelope formed from a page of German text. Inside, Meng’s book, its single staple binding bound in paper from a page in English on dressmaking. Rough, hand-cut paper, soft yet tactile to the touch. 10.5 X 14 cm, a stack of folded cards waiting to be opened. Delight.

Sleeve with Elbow Puff.—“ and gives a description of how to make a puff sleeve including illustrations and patterns. Here another example of a chap where design and content fit just right since Meng’s chap is a “lost workbook” including lessons and exercises and entries in “ordinary time” and “letters to d ...more
I really loved this chapbook. I will have a proper review of it in either the next installment on Galatea Resurrects, or the one after the next.
This dusie kollektiv chapbook especially struck my fancy from its unique design to its charming title to the quirky curios within. I can visualize these adorable little booklets spilling out of slightly misshapen baskets at craft fair tables, mixed with multicolored fabric poppies or battered pointe shoes. I can see them at bake sale tables accompanied by giant blonde brownies and tiny lime crèmes. I can see them snuck into public lavatories, placed slightly askew atop shiny silver dispensers fo ...more
