Scranton Lace, by Margot Douaihy with illustrations by Bri Hermanson (Clemson, SC: Clemson University Press, 2017), viii 97 pp. (illus.), Paperback. ISBN 978-1-942954-47-7
This book mirrors the narrative possibilities of fabric that is both luxury and utility, Scranton Lace occupies the space between the real and imagined. Forty-four poems and twenty illustrations interact to explore themes ranging from interarts expression to the time/timelessness of derelict spaces to queerness and love. The illustrations incorporate relief prints made from actual lace manufactured in the now-abandoned Scranton Lace factory.
