Art for Sale

Poetic Art/ Word Art/ Visual Poetry by Daniel Staub Weinberg

Anything Dan Weinberg does is interesting. That includes his drawings. P.S. I own one of his original xeroxes. -Bill Yarrow-Poet

Dan Weinberg has given us modern day proverbs on a quilt-like background. -Jerry Pendergast-Chicago poet

Daniel Weinberg is an outsider artist and poet, with a distinct style of his own. His work is delicate, transparent and naked; innocent, yet thoughtful. Embedded in Jewish tradition he is totally himself. -Ayala Leyser, Ph..D. – Out of Line Art Gallery

Dan is a visual poet…a word artist. -Lowell “Race Man” Thompson-Artist

I like your [Weinberg’s] art. I like political art. -Dorit Jordan Dotan-Artist

A moving, powerful collection of art that strikes at the core of our own urgency. Dan’s work captures the “outsider” sensibility, so appropriate for a time in which most of us feel like strangers in our own country. -John Pietaro-Dissident Arts Fest organizer

Making Love to the 50 Ft. Woman, Poems 1998-2015, Rick Luperts 17th Book

Making Love to the 50 Ft. Woman, Poems 1998-2015, Rick Luperts 17th BookWith a foreword by Brendan Constantine

Rick Lupert’s seventeenth poetry collection, Making Love to the 50 Ft. Woman (Rothco Press, May 2015), is the long awaited follow up to, and first collection of Lupert’s selected works since, 1997’s I am My Own Orange County. Lupert’s poetry exists at the intersections of the wise and the ridiculous, the spectacular and the mundane. The humor and deeper themes throughout his work will win over the generations of people who’ve come to regard poetry as an inaccessible literary art. These poems, written over the last two decades, have been widely published in dozens of journals, zines, and anthologies from all over the world. They’re rooted in the every day Los Angeles experience and take you through fatherhood, traffic, love, death, and the inevitable experience of finding a wrapped sausage on the sidewalk. You’ll learn how to kiss, you’ll meet the cutest leaf in the world, you’ll say goodbye to Pete Seeger and Robin Williams, you may even relive your own childhood. Get ready to Make Love to the Fifty Ft. Woman. Don’t wear anything complicated.

The Gettysburg Undress – Rick Lupert’s 16th Book

The Gettysburg Undress: Poems from Gettysburg, PA, Washington, DC, Richmond, VA, Baltimore, MD., and environs - Rick Luperts 16th BookThe Gettysburg Undress: Poems from Gettysburg, PA, Washington, DC, Richmond, VA, Baltimore, MD., and environs – Rick Luperts 16th Book

“Rick Lupert’s The Gettysberg Undress is a delightful romp through the museums and tourist attractions of the mid-Atlantic States. I found it more believable than Steinbeck’s Travels with Charlie. His wife, Addie, is a more interesting personality by far than a poodle. His observations are written in a minimalist style which is a cross between Basho and Brautigan. Each poem is a tiny masterpiece. Some poems, like “Animal Hospital,” strike a ghostly chord. His humor is inclusive, making the reader part of the mission – to bring the fun back to poetry by entertaining the heck out of you, plus making you think about the world.”

~ Hal Sirowitz, former Poet Laureate of Queens, New York, Author “Mother Said”

I’m very excited to have joined the Rothco Press family with the very first title in their Caffeine Poetry Series, and my sixteenth collection of poetry, written on location while traveling through the sites, museums and restaurants of the cradle of the Civil War.

Death of a Mauve Bat by Rick Lupert

Death of a Mauve Bat by Rick Lupert

Death of a Mauve Bat: The Poet’s Experiences in, and on the way to and from, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

“I know of no other poet able to establish intimacy with the reader as fast as Lupert. If this is your first experience of his work, I urge you to receive him as you would any friend of a friend.” ~ Brendan Constantine

Rick Lupert’s brings you back to the hidden Canada in the follow up to his 2011 collection, Sinzibuckwud! written in Montreal, Death of a Mauve Bat steers you through Toronto and Niagara Falls with Lupert’s one of a kind satirical filter. You’ll learn Toronto like no-one ever should. You’ll climb an unfinished castle, drink a blue drink, mosey in and out of the requisite museums and wonder at the ekphrastic glories that are revealed. You’ll wander the streets in search of vegetarian hot dogs and stand in the lights which illuminated the most famous funnytarians of our time. Throw away your guidebook, bring this instead. (okay, maybe bring both.) This is travelogue poetry for the 21st century. (160 Pages, Ain’t Got No Press, January 2012)
