Brian Blanchfield, who has a poem in 111O/6, wrote this to us on receiving his copy of the issue:
"when I worked in publishing, when a manuscript arrived partially intact at my desk from Germany, in a large green cloth bag marked Luftpost, with a bilingual apology dated weeks before from the postal service in Tübingen safety-pinned to it,
"just that once (I took it home and for years I hoisted it as laundry bag),
"have I ever received something via the (international) post that was as affecting as the broadsides edition of 111O, here now in Tucson. It is a joy to unsheathe and experience.
Thanks, again, for all the care and artistry."
