Flipping through the book the author described as “Typewriter poems and the rattlings of a curious mind,” I first find that aesthetically, it’s quite pleasing. The vintage look of the typewritten pages and aged paper gives a wonderfully warm and artistic appeal that you just don’t find in your everyday poetry books. Believe me, I know this. My first book of poetry is black text on white paper, but in my defense, the cover is fantastic!
Anyway, this isn’t about me, it’s about Tyler Knott Gregson who has released a sublime collection of balladry. Its mixed media design and substantive content blends beautifully, and the commentaries he interjects sporadically gives the reader an opportunity to delve into his personal world of inner thoughts and creativity.
Overall, I give two thumbs up for Wildly into the Dark!
