I just finished creating a 2 in. x 2 in. book. It’s full of small poems originally written for this blog. I’m going to leave copies all over Washington, DC for strangers to find: in dusty bars, on the metro, under chocolate bars in convenience stores, etc. These little books are not meant to be kept; they are full of a love that travels. The first page reads: “This book is a free object with a will to travel. You can help it achieve its goal. After you read it, pass it on to a stranger or a friend.” Think of these little guys as one-time pills: you have a quick dose of love to pick you up, then you pass the pill on to another patient in need.
I want these miniature tomes to travel outside of the DC area, too. If you are interested in helping the cause, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and: 1) tell me your address, and I’ll snail mail you some copies of the book or 2) I can email you the book template, and you can make copies yourself. Crafting 10 copies requires just 3 sheets of computer paper, printed double sided, and a bit of cutting, folding, and stapling. Whichever way you choose to help, I encourage you to take a photo of the books wherever you leave them to be found or in the hands of a stranger or a friend. Post the photos on your Tumblr, and I’ll reblog them with a special thanks to you. Thanks in advance for helping share the love—literally. — Kavalier Calm
