Poetry. Art. Featuring the poetry of William Hicks and the sculpture of Maggie Hazen, STARGAZER'S KITCHEN offers a delicately intertwined world of language and visual art. Poignant, funny, and at times tragic, the poems and art of STARGAZER'S KITCHEN come together in a powerful call and response, creating a whole that is both beautiful and thought-provoking. Not just an art book grafted onto a book of poetry, this first title from Synecdoche Press offers a meaningful and moving conversation between artist and poet. Poetry becomes visual and sculpture becomes literary as you read through STARGAZER'S KITCHEN. A real treasure for those who love art, those who love poetry, and those who are just looking for something new and amazing.
