TOTEM by Brian Foley, one of the winners of our last Equinox Chapbook contest...
TOTEM is a modern-day "girdle book" adapted from the medieval monastic tradition of important texts meant to be worn on the reader's belt. It is set in Trajan Pro and printed on 120 gsm Arches Text Wove. Each of the 100 unique books in this limited edition print run are bound in upcycled denim with a reclaimed leather strap.
Foley is the author of The Constitution (Black Ocean, April 2014). His
poems have appeared in Boston Review, The Fanzine, Everyday Genius, Denver
Quarterly, and The Volta. He is the editor of Brave Men Press and works in Western Massachusetts.
