Kay Rosen, ed.
Nau Sea Sea Sick

Published by the UK's Four Corners Books, this edition of stories is the fourth in their series of "Familiars," in which a contemporary artist illustrates a classic text.

American artist Kay Rosen leads us offshore with her illustrations for this volume of the following stories, all about the sea:
John Moore: Local Boy Makes Good
Katherine Mansfield: The Voyage
Stephen Crane: The Open Boat
Isabella Bird: The Hawaiian Archipelago, Letter I
John Aaron Rosen: Stranger In The Empty Night
Eileen Myles: Everyday Barf

Kay Rosen has been exploring the possibilities of words as images for over 25 years. She delights in the small shift; the subtle change that subverts meaning and reveals the unexpected.
