A moving meditation on the small moments that make up our lives, and the intimacy of truly knowing another being, “Drop Everything” is a poem of quiet beauty and power. Author of numerous volumes of outstanding poetry, Jeff Schwaner lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
We had the pleasure of setting this poem by hand, letter-by-letter and line-by-line, to manifest its loveliness in metal, ink, paper, and to share it with you. It is composed in Centaur type, a venerable typeface designed in 1914 by Bruce Rogers, and accompanied by accents in its companion italic face Arrighi. The paper is sumptuous “Holyoke,” a very thick, cream-white cotton paper. Each broadside in this limited edition of 45 is numbered.
