Ekphrastic engagements with sculptures and jewelry by the artist Michael Lee Kalish and other objects, these poems take the Renaissance cabinets of curiosities as point of departure. Reed’s textual wunderkammer assembles a miniature world of wonders, her poems navigating the curious space of the “fabulous,” that “science” of speculation, acquisitiveness, and contemplation.  The collection includes six ink drawings by novelist-artist Rikki Ducornet.
