Seared with Ink is not your typical book of poetry: there are no rhyming couplets, no aesthetic white spaces, no arcane allusions. A fusion of artwork and words, Seared with Ink is a 168-page trio of color, image, and story.
A publishing innovation, Seared with Ink is anything but a conventional poetry book. A project conceived by poet S.J. Ferrandi, Seared with Ink is a collaborative effort between the poet and the “Craigslist Artist Project” – bringing together 40 artists from across North America who submitted bold, original pieces to accompany the book’s 95 poems. The perfect book for readers who eschew fussy verbiage, Ferrandi’s illustrated compilation of “prose snapshots” – micro-narratives about life, love, and chickens – is accessible and relatable by everyone. Open the book to any page and get acquainted with people you may actually already know. And, enjoy the pleasure of a beautiful coffee table book that was designed to rouse not only the eye, but the mind, and the heart as well.
