The
small press is probably the closest equivalent to your local farmer's market.... These are labors of love
not engaged in the production of commodities for consumption, but something closer to Lewis Hyde's notion of 'the gift.' Hand-sewn chapbooks take time to make, the poems in them take time to read, and the poets (most likely) took a lot of time to write them. Their production occurs on a smaller (and less grandiose) scale, and like the Slow Food and broader Slow Culture movement, they want to restore to us a sense of time that our current world system strips away from us. Perhaps they wouldn't want to be in the airports, even if we let them. But they can, like the local food economy (which is growing at a spectacular rate, nationally), become viable alternatives with our support.--Adam Roberts, blogging for The Atlantic, Good Poetry Is Like Good Food: How to Find It ... and Savor It

*Le Bouquiniste is a mobile kiosk featuring books, prints, broadsides, chapbooks, zines–all work of small & independent presses. Le Bouquiniste is a special project of Curious Matter, a contemporary art gallery located in downtown Jersey City.
