There are several poets who have rocked my calligraphic world: W.S. Merwin is one of them. There are several poems of his that I work and rework in different formats: manuscript books, broadsides, even wall poetry! I've recently put several "book tours" up on youtube...hopefully you will get them if you search: W.S. Merwin (Love, the Letterist) The piece above is "Avoiding News by the River" as a broadside; I have also done "For Love of October" many times. I also admire what Merwin had done with his life, as well as being an awesome and prolific poet. May he have a wonderful year as poet laureate!
