Illustrated by Matthew Kinney

Matthew Sinclair Kinney's ink wash drawings of New York City are featured with the poetry of Bruna Mori in a book entitled Derive.
Matt told me that some years back, he was on the street in New York, working on some of his drawings, and this woman stopped to speak with him, and asked if he would be willing to have his work combined with her poetry for a book. The woman was poet Bruna Mori, and the book has recently been published by Meritage Press.
The book is available at and locally at World's End Books. I understand that the bookstore at Dia:Beacon will also be carrying the title soon.
World's End Books at 474 Main St in Beacon will be hosting a book signing and reception on Saturday, Feb 24 from 5-7pm. Both Mori and Kinney will be present at the event, and Mori will be reading selections of her poetry. For more information, call 845.831.1760
