February Trading Card featuring Christian Bök

Fact-Simile is pleased to present the next installment in our 2010 Literary Trading Card Series, featuring experimental Canadian poet Christian Bök!

Every month during 2010 and beyond we will release a limited edition trading card featuring new work from a notable contemporary literary figure.

Patterned after classic baseball card designs, each collectible card will be available for just 99 cents on our website or FREE with any purchase of a Fact-Simile title/item. Collect the whole set! Trade them with your friends! For the price of a song on iTunes, you too can own a piece of literary history.

Many Thanks and Happy Reading,

Travis Macdonald & JenMarie Davis
