CHAPS, CHECK OUT COLLECTED CHAPS!
Is anyone else thinking there's a trend here? A trend of Collected Chapbooks? Which is interesting because chaps are, or can be, discrete publications on their own but, being chaps, are typically skinny. So that a collection of such need not be overly-BRICK-ish. One of my favorite new collected chaps, for instance, is Jim McCrary's All That which comes in at 172 pages (I can write 172 pages as a single poetry collection).
Of course, another favorite is Sheila Murphy's COLLECTED CHAPS which is a BRICK at at 599 pages. Anyway, Jim and Sheila have produced mighty fine chaps over the years...do check them out!
