Refrain for Rental Boat 4

A collection of poems by

This musical poem at once despairs and revels in a frustrating day from the author's former life in the salmon-fishing industry on the Fraser River Delta. Bowling and his brother are set to head out on the river - it's the perfect tide at the height of the run - but "Something is wrong with the Volvo prop!"

The text of this poem was hand composed in Goudy Old Style and printed on Mohawk Superfine paper. Jack McMaster's illustrations combine letterpress printing with the lost twentieth-century colouring technique of pochoir, or painting through stencils.

This 12-page accordion-style book is trimmed to 8 x 8 inches and bound between boards covered in St. Armand handmade paper.
