ERIC SIMPSON Collaborates on Kickstarter Project With Poet John Poch

SimpsonJ. Eric Simpson, 2013 BFA in Studio Art, in collaboration with John Poch, Ph.D., professor in English at Texas Tech, successfully used Kickstarter to raise funds to support production of an artbook project called Longsuffering. The book will bring together the poetry of John Poch and Eric’s recent photographic work.

Their Kickstarter campaign, which originally sought to raise $8,000 for the project, was successfully funded on April 24th with $13,570 committed by 106 persons from around the country.

The project will involve letter pressed poetry on fine paper with archival photographs tipped-in onto the folios. The folios will be hand-stitched and cased by Eric, himself, into a limited edition of 30 copies of Longsuffering.

Both Simpson and Poch were recently interviewed about this project by The Bowerbird.

Eric expects to complete the project before he moves to Buffalo, New York, where he will begin his MFA studies this fall.
