We are delighted to announce that East Wind by Brian Lewis is now available in a new edition from Gordian Projects. This second unnumbered edition is published as a single hand-stitched pamphlet, and comes with an individual haiku, presented in an envelope as an artist’s multiple. The first edition, a set of three hand-stitched and stamped pamphlets in a numbered edition of 25, sold out within two weeks of release in late 2015.
