Rubicon Press publisher, poet, and Olive editorial member Jenna Butler said I could post the eBook version of Winter Ballast on the blog. This is Olive designer Glenn Robson’s very first chapbook (he had just taken over design duties from yours truly); so once I got the file from Glenn, it was a painless bit of prep work to ready the PDF for uploading. Glenn, this is a terrific-looking chapbook! Cover photo generously provided by Ray Rasmussen. It does what good book design ought to do—NOT DRAW ATTENTION TO ITSELF. It simply dishes up Jenna’s delectable words and images transparently and tastefully. I can’t wait to see what you do this fall, Glenn.
