Spine Poems: An Eclectic Collection of Found Verse for Book Lovers
Simon, Annette Daupin
Easy to create and share online, spine poems—also known as collage poems or centos—have become a fun and popular way of writing poetry. Spine Poemsis a delightful, illustrated collection of more than 100 spine poems that range from hilarious to heart-rending to profound.
Award-winning creative director and former bookseller Annette Dauphin Simon has arranged the poems in categories that resemble those found in a bookstore: Art, Biography and Memoir, Business, Cooking, Home and Garden, Music, Parenting, Philosophy, Politics, Pop Culture, Science Fiction and Fantasy, and True Crime. Each poem pulls from a wide variety of book genres and ranges from the short and quippy to lengthier and poignant.
