Abstract
In 1989, Tender Buttons Press published their first book, Bernadette Mayer’s Sonnets. There was no back-cover blurb or text of any sort, just a striking abstract image of blue on black. There was, however, a note by Mayer in the text at the end of the book, explaining how the collection of sonnets came to be. This note was cannibalized as a blurb for the 25th anniversary reprinting of the book (with extra material).
