  • Alodiecloud makes unique prints, stickers, clothing, jewelry, and canvases. Our featured work and merchandise is beautiful, soulful, intimate, and at times wearable, art.

The first side, a Mandalist, whose in-depth designs will leave you contemplative and astounded at its intricacies. The other side, an oil painter, pulls you into vibrant colors and tranquil scenes. The intriguing yin and yang of Alodiecloud has something for everyone.

  • Antrim House strives to publish the best poetry by writers from all parts of the country, with a special emphasis on emerging poets. We prefer work that does not cater to the academic establishment but is part of the continuum of work produced by writers the likes of Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Richard Wilbur, Mary Oliver, Mark Doty, Jane Kenyon, and Galway Kinnell. We also stress the importance of oral presentation, encouraging our authors to perform their work as widely as possible. We hope to cultivate wider appreciation of a vibrant literary form that too often goes unnoticed in the midst of pop culture’s noise-making. While we have no bias toward formal or informal, traditional or innovative work, we do insist that Antrim House writing be both comprehensible and resonant, rewarding multiple readings by revealing itself gradually but also avoiding the sort of inscrutability too much in vogue. When the poetry we publish has a political slant, we like it to abide by Emily Dickinson’s dictum: “Tell all the Truth but tell It slant.” That is, we favor the work of a writer like Martín Espada, whose political poetry is imagistic rather than abstract. If we publish poetry that might be termed “confessional,” we insist that it be universal and not purely personal. Finally, we believe that high seriousness and high humor can cohabit. We side with Shakespeare against Racine.

    At Antrim House, we know that when poetry speaks simply and plainly, while at the same time retaining a sense of mystery and offering multiple levels of meaning, it can be as popular an art form in this country as it already is in others.

  • Brooklyn Poets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization celebrating and cultivating the poets, poetry and literary heritage of Brooklyn, the birthplace of American poetry.

    That’s right, birthplace. If you believe, as we do, that with the publication of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass in 1855, American poetry was born, then Brooklyn, where that book was published by the Rome Brothers print shop on Old Fulton St, is where that took place.

    Over the years, Brooklyn has served as home to and inspired some of the most original and influential poets on the world stage, from Whitman, Hart Crane and Marianne Moore in the American tradition to expatriate masters such as W. H. Auden and Joseph Brodsky; visiting visionaries such as Vladimir Mayakovsky and Federico García Lorca; and hip-hop pioneers such as Big Daddy Kane, MCA, Guru, Biggie Smalls, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Jay Z.

    From Walt Whitman to Jay Z, Brooklyn, we go hard.

    Q: Who are the people in these pictures?
    A: All the photographs are repurposed original moments. That is to say, I do not know these people except for the new dialogue I and you create for them.

    Q: What if I want to customize a card?
    A: Email or instagram @squidbath! If you have a piece of fabric, design idea, words, or a photo it’s time we start to make something together.

    Q: Where do the words come from?
    A: I’ve gathered a collection of lines from books and poems (all authors cited on backs of cards) as well as a little help from my wise and cheeky friends and writing of my own.

    Q: When can I send one of these absurdities?
    A: Unlike the traditional Hallmark calendar, Squid bath encourages communication at random. Remember when your neighbor friends used to walk to your house, knock on your door, and ask you to come out and play? That’s what getting a card in the middle of April feels like.

    Q: Why send cards when I have a phone?
    A: We are a people oversaturated by instant text messages and email inboxes crowded by one thousand unsorted promos; the physical letter is a rare and special form of conversation I encourage you to embark upon.
