We are excited to officially publish The After today. Our third book, it clearly points the direction we’ve been striving toward and how we are envisioning our books for 2017 and beyond. It’s a sumptuous blend of poetry and art with commissioned music along with it.
Sometimes poetry comes to one for delight or comfort. Certainly, some of the projects we are working with authors, don’t have the intense sadness of this poem. But in this case, I would say it is almost a duty it is to offer this serious meditation on one of the most concerning aspects of climate change: the acceleration of the mass extinction underway.
