The print edition, published in collaboration with Phoenicia Publishing in Montreal, is 32 pages long and has a full-color, glossy cover with a black-and-white interior. The list price is $7.95.
The online version features a minimalist design to foreground the content with thumbnail-sized images from the same artist who did the cover for the print edition, Nancy Botkin. An audio player with a reading by the author accompanies each poem, for those who prefer to absorb the book in increments rather than listening to the full-length audiobook-podcast. The latter includes a guitar theme written and performed by Clayton specially for this project.
The book is Creative Commons-licensed (Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivatives) to encourage the sharing of its content on blogs, Tumblr sites, Facebook, etc. Let us know if you write a review — we’ll link it up in the Watermark news blog as well as in qarrtsiluni’s Twitter stream.
In case you missed it, we wrote about the chapbook contest selection process in the announcement of the contest results on July 1. If you entered the contest, you’ll be receiving a complimentary copy of Watermark shortly. Thanks to everyone for supporting independent publishing on the web.
