Here’s me posing with The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton, which I got in the mail today.

So happy to see this come to fruition, and great to see it out from the mighty BOA Editions, where my good friend and rock star author Peter Conners is publisher.

If you don’t hear from me, it’s because I am reading Clifton’s Collected, and with the original fonts used in all those super collections, which might have looked dated a couple years ago, seem essential to be part of this particular book. What fonts are these anyway?

  1. I did the typesetting. Yes, it’s Optima, which was Lucille’s choice for all of her books.

    1. Thanks Richard, and it’s wonderful to see that original Optima retained in her Collected!
