TKS Books, 2022. Item #3368
TKS is a small edition publishing project, whose name draws on a rogue Granary Books publishing name—Tibetan Kite Society—and the editorial annotation "tk." In that spirit, the project explores the idea of "the books to come," drawing on a range of printing techniques and poetic influences.
TKS Books' projects are cross-generational in their inquiry, archival and ephemeral in their orientation, and deeply invested in poetics. In its third year, TKS Books' publications include works by Diane di Prima, John Godfrey, Jerome and Sadie Rothenberg, and M.C. Kinniburgh.
This is a complete collection of all TKS editions published in 2022, including:
