Read the PDF version of [Hideous] Miraculous.

Is there anything stranger than being a real-life human being, one with actual emotions, one who performs actual actions in the service of a beating heart? Philip Schaefer’s [Hideous] Miraculous quietly paces and parses out a barrage of human moments / monuments / momentousness in a way that reminds us of our sturdy spine and the ground beneath our feet. It is embraceable, and bracing. 


–Nate Pritts

Signed by the author, 28 pages of poetry. Print run of 50.

Every book cover is usually made from these materials: cotton linters, recycled paper bags, banana peels, seaweed, Spanish moss, wildflowers, seashells, shredded money, & construction paper. The type of stitch will almost always be in the Japanese style of Asa-no-ha-Toji, while using hemp thread for the binding process. We print the guts of our books on Southworth(R) FSC Certified 55% Recycled 25% Cotton Linen Cover Stock. It's fancy.

BOAAT Press is a small independent press that makes each book by the order. Takes two to eight weeks to ship. Thanks for your patience.
