Includes a 5"x7" broadside, in vellum envelope, of the poem "A Belly Full of Stream," letterpressed with handset type by Aaron Parrett of the Territorial Press in Helena, Montana, on Moravia paper which was handmade at Velké Losiny in the Czech Republic (the oldest papermill in Central Europe).

Contact us to inquire exact copies currently available.] The Bluebird Run is a monumental collection of 180 new sonnets by Montana poet, memoirist, artist and musician Greg Keeler. Ranging from humorous flights to poignant meditations on loss, love, aging and the fate of humanity in the face of looming environmental and social crises, the poems showcase a highly lauded writer at the peak of his abilities. "If these sonnets were trout steams, they'd be full of rainbows and cutthroats alike." --William Pitt Root Keeler has previously published two memoirs, Waltzing with the Captain: Remembering Richard Brautigan and Trash Fish: a Life. He has written seven collections of poetry—most recently, Almost Happy from Limberlost Press. He also illustrated Jim Harrison’s chapbook, Livingston Suite. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
