Rovinj is a seaside town that, when rendered as a gelato, is brilliant blue and tastes like bubble gum. Perhaps there are other places that taste like Fragolla or Pesce. Cities like Pineapple; settlements of Banana in the distant hills; a township of Coconut Something or Other if you just keep following the winding roads along the coast. What is the population of Kiwi? The industry in Whisky or Red Bull? Who vacations in Tiramisu? And who visits Fruit of the Loom?
Walking and eating in Rovinj, Croatia, thinking about translation and other issues of the tongue, inspired both the imagery and the five prose poems in Sea Delisches. Printed using hand-set Bembo types, photopolymer plates from pencil drawings, and pressure prints, with Zerkall Book smooth white, Fabriano Tiziano pale felt blue, and Ingres antique sky blue papers. Edition of 65.
