THE LITTLE RED BOOK SERIES

whose criesTHE LITTLE RED BOOKS

4.25 X 5.5 inches; Saddle Stitched chapbook w/ Fire-engine Red covers; photocopied on white paper interior.

Starting in 1998, The Little Red Book (LRB) series included some of the best poets in the small press including Scott Wannberg (2 titles); AD Winans; Todd Moore (3 titles); Bill Shields; BZ Niditch (2 titles); Will Taylor, Jr; Gerald Locklin (2 titles); normal (2 titles); John Thomas; Philomene Long (2 titles); Lawrence Welsh; Bill Gainer; Belinda Subraman; Alan Catlin; Lyn Lifshin (2 titles); Rob Plath; Larry Jaffe;  and RD Armstrong. The series also included several anthologies: Lost Highway – a blues themed collection; Eyes Like Mingus – jazz themed poetry and Maytag Heights – a fundraiser for Habitat For Humanity with the theme of homelessness.

Because of the labor intensive nature of the LRBs and the publisher’s advancing years, this series of books has come to an end (ending at 61 titles).
