AAPA Marches Into Spring

AAPA Marches Into Spring

The March AAPA bundle had a number of welcome pieces, making it hard to narrow down to just a few "picks" for the month. But here are mine in three categories:

JOURNAL: Recreational Science issue number 3 from Paige Wilson Breault combines a neatly laid out nineteenth century look with deeply informative content. I also enjoy the artwork. I would like to learn more about how Paige combines typesetting on typewriters with the computer applications LibreOffice and Scribus.

ARTICLE: "The Word: The Basic Building Bock of Poetry" in Don Chupacabra Talks Poetry number 5 by Clarence Wolfshohl. Clarence gives us a new perspective on concepts that are so common as to be easily overlooked. For example, language is a remarkable technolory allowing us to share ideas, "A good thing, since mental telepathy rarely works." I learned a new word (poetaster) and enjoyed his ruminations on where words come from and how poets use them.

LETTERPRESS PROJECT: Of course we can expect a card printed by Danny & Marsha Kelly  in green to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day! Thanks for a touch of humor done up in an appropriate typeface.
