Poetry chapbook by Chris Way
Illustrations by Jonah Shore

Publication Date: February 2015
(4.375 x 7.25, 39pp, paperback)

City of Fish is a collection of 19 poems by Manhattan-based poet and musician Chris Way, with colored pencil & ink illustrations (including cover and back cover) by Brooklyn-based artist and author Jonah Shore. The poems, composed between 2011 and 2013, range in tone from the visceral and immediate to the confessional, dreamlike, meditative, playful, and suffocating. Way's verse is anchored in vivid imagery & painted with a clear emotional line; complementing the text is Shore's illustrations, which speak to and draw from the poetry with their rawness, simplicity, and symbology. The book itself is handsome, with saddle-stitched binding, silk-finish paper & felt-finish covers.
