✨One of almost two dozen collaborative poems appearing in our largest chapbook to date, A BARELY CONCEALED DESIGN (2020, Puddles of Sky Press) — available now

• limited edition of 54 copies

This book of short constraint-based poems by MA|DE is “full of bizarre twists in language, rich images, and an electrical charge that can only come from the rubbing together of two imaginative minds.” — Michael e. Casteels

A TRIP TO THE ZZOO is now available

✨One of almost two dozen collaborative poems appearing in our largest chapbook to date, A TRIP TO THE ZZOO (2020, Collusion Books) — available now

• full-colour variant cover (wolf or deer designs)
• limited edition of 100 numbered copies

A collection of collaborative poems that in some manner mention, reference or explore animal life; the title’s variant spelling is a deliberate gesture, signalling to the reader that the poems only share a partial resemblance to the spectacle of animal exhibition at a traditional zoo. These poems often venture into the territory of ecopoetics, with environmentally-conscious through-lines being a frequent presence in the work, either implicitly or explicitly.


MA|DE chapbook unboxing No. 2 … the second of two (!) new releases available this month — A BARELY CONCEALED DESIGN gives the first official peek at a new constraint-based poetry project we’ve been working on for the last little while ✨ Released by Michael e. Casteels’ Puddles of Sky Press in an edition of 54 handmade copies

P.S. want to get BOTH of our new chapbooks for one great price??? We’re just figuring out a special offer, stay tuned!
