I'm glad to finally stock some titles by this interesting small press! Their titles tend to go out-of-print and stay out-of-print (like volume 1 of Naive Poems).


Naive Poems - Volume Two collects poems written by a geographically diverse sampling of American children and teens. Created from the early 1960s to the late 1980s, our sources ranged from school district anthologies to small printed efforts by teachers bringing together their students’ work. These mimeographed or offset chapbooks and journals highlight a classroom or school’s work at a particular moment in time. Intended to be handed out to family and friends or simply archived in the school library, these publications rarely circulated beyond the zip code they were created in.
