Three of my fairytale-vignette poems are paired with imagined portraits painted by Emily Kalwaitis. We have called this book *Sleight* because we love to play with our words before we swallow them. This slight little volume of ours is a sleight of hand card trick with slight-sized protagonists in a slighted genre. Anyone who still thinks folk and fairy tales belong in the margins of literature has clearly not read enough of them. Let us illuminate that for you.

Technical Details:
Original poetry by Lindsay Lusby printed with Vandercook 4 proof press on creamy mouldmade paper from Germany. Original art by Emily Kalwaitis printed digitally and tipped in. Books bound by hand using coptic stitch and enclosed in fabric slipcase. Edition of 50.
