Old Try Features My James Still Broadside

Picture via Old Try

Back in the last century I was a letterpress printer for awhile, apprenticing with Gray Zeitz at Larkspur Press and Paul Holbrook at the M.I. King Library Press. Eventually, I started my own imprint: Adela Press. It was a fun, albeit short lived, enterprise.

As an admirer of the good folks at Old Try, Southerners living in Yankee exile, I forced a couple of my old poetry broadsides upon them recently. This past Friday they were kind enough to feature my broadside of the late Kentucky Poet Laureate James Still’s poem “Those I Want In Heaven With Me Should There Be Such a Place” on their blog. It’s a beautiful poem that will bring a tear to the eye to all but those of the hardest of hearts. Go take a look.

Look for a feature here at Pinstripe Pulpit on Old Try very soon. In the meantime, you can read Red Clay Soul’s post on Old Try and new venture Land vs. Ocean.
