Tiny House, Melanie Faith

Melanie Faith’s Tiny House is a micro chap of linked poems following the fictional narrative of a woman exploring tiny house ownership. Faith draws from her ancestral architectural experience (her family is full of builders and stone masons), to explore the idea of downsizing, stepping off the grid, and embracing the miniscule. We are charmed by this micro chap of sweet little poems. | open edition cover, $6

An excerpt from “It Is Advised:”

What makes a house a house
is light
altering inhabitant and interior

What makes a house a house
is a bed
built-in or pedestal or fold-down.

What makes a house a house
is the eye
recognizing a pitched roof as home.

The cover image (“Little Orange House & a Red Door” by Nicci Mechler) is printed on Epson premium matte professional paper. The micro chapbooks is handbound & each is trimmed by hand. As they are handmade, no two are exactly alike.
