Andrew Wessels interviewed at Best American Poetry

andrew_wessels-blogOver at the Best American Poetry blog, Nin Andrews interviews Les Figues managing editor Andrew Wessels about LFP and its conceptual approach to editing and publishing. Wessels remarks:

We see the book-as-object as inherently wedded to (and undifferentiated from) the book-as-text. So each and every aspect of our handling of the book is dedicated to seeing how our choices affect the text, beyond simply what might ‘look good’: what does choosing this font do and mean? what does choosing this trim size do and mean? what does this introduction and description do and mean? This process, which is quite intensive, helps us make books that I believe our authors are proud of and that encourage an active, productive engagement with our readers.
