Kristina Marie Darling’s gorgeous broadside/chapbook hybrid, Footnotes to a History of the Victorian Novel, is now available for purchase!
Footnotes to a History of the Victorian Novel is a poem in footnotes, wandering the ghosted halls of Victorian aesthetics in a spooky version of the whole story. This offering uses vintage wallpaper hand-sewn onto the pages with a tiny trinket and antique bobbin lace adorning the cover. All text is typed out on an IBM Selectric II typewriter. Footnotes can also be displayed as a poster on your wall, as it folds out accordian-style.
