POETRY PRIMER | a book of elementary principles

POETRY PRIMER is a limited edition book only available for sale through this website, and at Lesley-Anne’s public readings.

This collection of lyric poetry, with several poems previously published in literary journals, serves up equal portions of social justice and earthy spirituality. In everything Lesley-Anne offers her voice in praise of the sacred ordinary.

Each book is bound by hand with 1950’s “Dick and Jane” primer flash card covers, and stainless steel fasteners. Each cover set is a distinct, witty combination of cards from a flashcard set originally used in an Okanagan elementary school.

Lesley-Anne’s POETRY/ART BOOK honours the past, and celebrates the present. It is highly collectible.

With special thanks to Joel Clements of Brainstorm Studios Toronto, my friends at South Art Project, the creative team at Rapidprint, Kelowna, SHARE Thrift Store, and Miss Ecklund, a teacher.
