Refrain for Rental Boat 4

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 × 8 inches and bound between boards covered in St. Armand handmade paper.
