JackPine Press presents Remediation, a collection of two poems by Garth Martens, with artwork by Chelsea Rushton.
This book is handmade by our wonderful collective members at JackPine Press, with handmade hard covers using soft handmade Nepalese paper. The cover jackets were screen-printed by hand, and the pages are hand bound in a saddle stitch.
Garth Martens is the winner of the 2011 Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers. His first book, Prologue for the Age of Consequence, published with House of Anansi Press made him a Finalist for the 2014 Governor General’s Literary Award for Poetry.
