Christian Peet’s “Pluto: Never Forget” now available

 

TS publisher Christian Peet has a new chapbook out, Pluto: Never Forget, published by Interbirth Books.

Seventy-six books were designed, printed, assembled, and hand bound 100% in-house at Interbirth Books by Micah Robbins and Clifton Riley. Twenty-six books are bound between boards using the coptic stitch, lettered A-Z, and signed by the author. Fifty books are bound in paper using the pamphlet stitch. The cover is an original silk screen print.

Pluto: Never Forget picks up where Book 1 of The Nines left off: before the election of Barack Obama was even a hope. Written for anyone stunned into mute horror during those dark days, Pluto: Never Forget offers an E-bay Monet, a drunk Brad Pitt and Mary Oliver, an “ordered variety” of phonemic systems grown from the “disorderly monotony” of “animal cries,” a graduating class of part-time highschoolers and full-time crackheads hoping to create a unified theory explaining everything in the universe, and cautionary tales of “conflicting imperatives such as Teach Peace and Eat the Rich.” Also included — at no extra cost — are images you won’t find on TV: “One for every dead Iraqi child–the boy popped by a tank, the girl whose eyes burned like marshmallows in her skull. Every East Coast gas station blanketed with their skin. Children enough to circle the US Capitol fifty times, with a rope of small intestines. And so on.”
