The second edition of the first book published and sold by The Aesthetic Union is not only a collection of artwork and poetry by James Lewis Tucker, but it is so well crafted, it’s an art object itself.

James has been consumed by this book for quite some time. He started writing in 2015, privately at first, but soon was encouraged to publish digitally. Upon finding his writing well received by strangers - not just people he knew - and ”real“ writers as well, the seed of a physical volume that melded artwork alongside poetry was planted. To James it wasn’t just book that married two mediums, it was a standalone art piece in its own right. Naturally, James poured himself into the creation of this small book. The fruits of his labor are evident in this beautifully crafted testimony of vulnerability, meant to be held close in every possible way.

Size: 4" x 6", the cover is foil-stamped with gatefold and golden endpapers.
