Now Batting: Bernadette Mayer

Fact-Simile is excited to announce #50 (second of 2014) in our ongoing series lineup of Poetry Trading Cards: Bernadette Mayer.

Bernadette Mayer -- former director of The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church, former co-publisher of United Artists Books and Magazines, and author of more than 25 books of poetry (most recently The Helens of Troy, NY from New Directions) -- needs no introduction. Her work has influenced and shaped the world and its poetry for more than four decades and we are honored to share her latest here...

Patterned after a 1990 Fleer baseball card design, Bernadette Mayer's poetry trading card features a new poem titled "Poem For The Benefit For Me" on the reverse side.

Fact-Simile Poetry Trading Cards are printed on recycled cardboard and available for just 99 cents on our website. Subscriptions to the 2014 Poetry Trading Card Series are now available and shipping. Plus, all 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Poetry Trading Cards are still available individually or as complete sets.

Thanks for Reading,

Travis & JenMarie Macdonald
