Garbanzo is another entry into the canon of the Quiescence series of chapbooks -- hand-created books that are rivet bound, silk bookmarked, screen-printed dust-jacketed, and individually numbered. There are, without a doubt, no other books being created in this way, anywhere, within a solar system or three.

Garbanzo (book two) is NOW AVAILABLE. The book is 148 pages and is limited to 304 6/10ths printed copies. There will also be a digital version available via the iBookstore soon after the tangible release.
