Flowers? Check. Chocolate? Check. Poetry? House of Anansi’s got you covered. Their collection of Special Edition Poetry, which includes my own Sequence, will make the perfect gift for your Valentine. Each limited-edition hardcover book included in the collection was printed and bound at Coach House on bpNichol Lane in Toronto, in a limited edition of only 50 printings each.
This year, add a personalized note to your gift, which will be hand-written by Anansi’s Award Winning Art Director, Michael Solomon. Use lines from your Valentine’s favourite Shakespearean play, or write your own love letter, and Michael will hand-write your note in an Ecruwhite Triple Debossed Frame 96 lb. card. He will also add his own touch with custom, one-of-a-kind artwork.
There is no extra charge for requesting the hand-written note and custom drawing from Michael. Just leave a note for your Valentine in the “add special instructions for your order…” box during checkout (150 characters max), and Anansi will do the rest.
To go along with your unconventional valentine, Anansi has a broadsheet letterpress poem to accompany each poetry collection. The broadsheet from Sequence is here! Specially typeset and letterpress printed on uncoated creme archival paper by Coach House Press, these 12″ x 19″ prints are perfect for framing, especially this one!
