[BKARTS] Charles Hobson, Saturday, 5-16-09, Mrs. Dalloway's



Charles Hobson will be presenting his new book, Ancient Mariner, at Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore, Saturday, May 16, 4 pm.

The text for Ancient Mariner, an essay, is by Roger Angell, best known as a New Yorker magazine senior editor and as a baseball writer.
Ancient Mariner is about sailing in Maine and conveys vivid images of Angell's sailing experiences of more than sixty years.
Ancient Mariner is published in a limited edition, with a large, 15- by-11-inch, accordion-page format, and bound in boards covered
with copies of maritime charts used by the author. It is contained in a slipcase covered in sailcloth-like canvas. Ancient Mariner includes
model sails and rigging, maritime charts of Maine, and mono-types with pastel by Charles Hobson.
In order to read the final page, the reader must actually jibe the mainsail.


Charles Hobson will have a variety of his books for sale after the presentation. Go to www.charleshobson.com to see more work.
