Origin of the Chapbook

My friend, Carolyn Boyd, recently published, The DNA of Sand, a chapbook of poems set in a variety of locations from Turkey to Texas, with poems that will surprise, delight and help you to see the world from a variety of perspectives.

Did you ever wonder about the origin of that slim volume we call the chapbook? If so, check out its history on Sam Riedel’s blog post, “Chapbooks: A Short History of the Short Book”.

      I just thought it so funny to think of something like the “chapbook” being Elizabethan appearing hundreds of years later in Sierra Leone! One never knows when they publish something on their blog where it might end up:-}
