An extraordinary collaboration between poet and artist, this book is a collection of poems constructed by Justin Petropoulos via manipulation and redaction of Edna Keaton’s "The Book of Earths," published in 1928, a comprehensive history of theories about the shape of the Earth and its collective folklore. This iteration — one of multiple manifestations — includes poetry of various lengths and forms, organized as titled chapters.
