Latvian Poetry Book Launch and Signing with Laris Kreslins & Kevin Mercer

October 27, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm



Please join poet, curator, and graphic designer Laris Kreslins along with Philadelphia based artist, illustrator and printmaker Kevin Mercer for a Latvian Poetry Book Launch & Signing of new Latvian poetry: Atlaidas/es, a 72 page volume with various color pages/plates featuring work by Mercer.

“I’m excited to announce my latest book of poems Atlaidas/es. This new collection is about empathy, misplaced and imagined memories, and all sorts of endings.” – Laris Kreslins

The book has been designed to be a convenient pocket size volume measuring in at 4 x 7 inches. It contains over 60 new, never before published micro-poems and it will be printed in a limited and numbered edition of 200.


We were hooked on this book launch by the description of the poetry. Laris Kreslins, poet, curator and graphic designer calls his poems micro-poems and says they are about “empathy, misplaced and imagined memories, and all sorts of endings.” Kreslin’s pocket-sized book (4×7”), titled Atlaidas/es, and with art by Kevin Mercer, is printed in an edition of 200. We think the size is perfect for the micro-poems. – artblog
