Editing at Skoor Sound? The Vis-à-Vis Society!

By | Books

Skoor Sound Editing Vis-a-vis Always interesting to spend time with Eric Eagle at Skoor Sound. It’s our next book in progress…something sweet from The Vis-à-Vis Society!

(Pub. note: feeling off all day, I went home from this session and then almost had a heart attack! Spent the night at Harborview after the classic symptoms of heart attack: numb left arm, shortness of breath, super high blood pressure.. if you have the symptoms, don’t be dumb like me: CALL 911!!!)

Review of “Alchemy for Cells…” in the Tupelo Quarterly

By | Reviews

“What the poetry strives to bring about, whether through the magic of words or the evocative nature of the watercolors, is a kind of transmutation. Jewell Zeller and DeBecker teach us how our thoughts and experiences can transform not just our world, but our very psyche, cultivating a consciousness that holds no divide, a mind that is border and transgression, moving elegantly between states of being. All, of course, this philosophizing is done in language that is casually elegant.” – Daniel Casey

Alchemy for Cells in the High Desert Journal

By | Thoughts

“Zeller and DeBacker present a visual jigsaw puzzle, one that ultimately paints a scene of a roaring and whispering beast alongside a “sweet girl made of March light through a seed pod,” alongside watercolor hummingbirds, and hammers for heads—a book of undeniable strangeness. It delves without fear, or, rather, with a reasonably wild fear, into our increasingly unpredictable climate situation and our currently harrowing political climate”— Tor Strand on Alchemy for Cells & Other Beasts

Oh, What Sweet Cookbooks!

Cookbooks Les Editions de l'Epure

Saw this hand-sewn single ingredient cookbooks at Artazart bookstore along the St. Martin canal in Paris. One needs to cut the pages apart due to the print/fold, so I couldn’t get a good look at the recipes until I got home. But they’re smartly laid out, nice materials, and would make charming gifts.

Of course I bought the book on anchovies, but also more interestingly, “l’air”— imagine soufflés and foam.

A very sweet idea done well.
