This Is Bad poems by Lindsey Anne Baker with a linocut by Kim Darling

These fifty short prose poems follow the mind watching and noting, adjusting to and rearranging the terms of existence and love — what we can hope for when we realize the body is mostly not ours to control.

 

Hand set in 12 point Bulmer type with 60 point Empire numerals and title, printed on dampened Neenah Mint Letterpress Cotton Paper.

Lindsey Anne Baker is a writer and editor in Omaha, Nebraska. Her poetry has appeared in journals including Sugar House Review, Two Serious Ladies, Sweet: A Literary Confection, and Omaha's own burntdistrict. Her first chapbook, Fine Warm Pulse, was published in 2013 by dancing girl press. In 2015, Lindsey was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship in Literature by the Nebraska Arts Council.

Kim Darling works in a range of media from from painting and sculpture to performance.
Her work explores ideas of gender, social and political issues, and taboo. Drawing upon historic and contemporary icons from our unconscious reality, her work explores a sacred/profane dichotomy using mark making generated in a method similar to automatic writing. This content is drawn from myths and is seen in fragmented and compartmentalized layers. Graphic shapes are synthesized into a seamless, cacophonous flow, harnessing a frenzied vigor.

 

Darling holds a BFA in studio art from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She participates in residencies throughout the country and has been featured in regional solo and group shows. Darling's passion for collaboration has led her to social practice and partnerships with local, national, and international artists and arts organizations.

The first print run of Baker’s book was completed on Friday, November 9, 2018.
