An Ecotone Almanac is a guide to living through the seasons in relation to place. The book gathers fifteen entries from Ecotone’s Various Instructions department, in which writers and artists offer how-to’s, lists, formulas, and guides. Instructions from past contributors, including Samiya Bashir, Molly Tenenbaum, and Artress Bethany White, sit alongside work from writers and artists new to our pages, among them Bhanu Kapil, Malinda Maynor Lowery, and Janisse Ray. The cover and interior feature printer’s cuts and ornaments from the collection of letterpress studio and residency program Stelo Press.
Conveniently sized, with a section for your notes in the back, this book will be a companion for explorations of city and country as well as for writing group meetings, picnics, cookery, evening ponderings, and leisurely rambles closer to home.
