DIVINATIONS by Christopher McCurry (Osedax Press; 28 cards)

("Waterfalls," Christopher McCurry)

Inspired by forms of divination such as tarot and haruspicy (reading entrails), as well as the intricacies of everyday life, each poem in this collection is printed on a separate card which can be shuffled, read, re-read, and interpreted for guidance and insight. (Instructions on how to read the cards are included!) Each collection is numbered and signed by the author, hand-packaged in origami paper, and bound with a wax seal.

CHRISTOPHER MCCURRY teaches high school English and is the cofounder of Workhorse, a community for working writers. His chapbooks include Nearly Perfect Photograph: Marriage Sonnets and Splayed.

Beautiful packaging, excellent poetry, and a very cool concept.

I savored this collection, not wanting it to end. Walowitz' imprimatur is in each poem: humor, warmth, history, experience, thought, and more. Whether starting from a piece of personal history, a current event, or a hybrid of the two, the end results are magic. Highly recommended!!

Beautifully made, high quality paper and nicely bound with moving writing! Shipped very quickly, and they even kindly gave me an extra zine!! Highly recommend.
