In progress... Ephemera Issue - Lauren Levin's "Tresk"

Little Red Leaves has taken on a pretty ambitious task. Issue #6 will consist of individually owned and operated ephemera objects that promise to be all over the place (in a good way).

The first poem up for ephemerization was Lauren Levin's 'Tresk," a wonderfully jagged poem that stomps down the page. Here's a sneak peak at the final pamphlet that accentuates the short lines with thick black highlights and adds red "T" accents (ala the red cross) on the word 'Tresk.'

(Note: TRESK has been called a migraine gene, acting like a switch that can control the sensitivity of pain nerves in the brain.)

If you like, please consider purchasing a subscription to issue #6 (only 7 left!).
