Book 4 Blind Date packages have sold out. Purchase Blind Date Book 5 here.
Walt Whitman's visionary manifesto, visually reimagined.
“Somewhere Waiting” is our ode to Whitman's most expansive and audacious poem. Combined with 27 illustrations, the poem explores Whitman's own exuberant, witty, transcendent theory of everything, beginning with "a spear of summer grass.” Carefully culled to about one third of its original length, this version provides the perfect introduction to Whitman's most beloved work.
Only moderately well recognized in his time, Whitman is now regarded as the first and possibly greatest of American poets. As Harold Bloom said, "Walt Whitman is your imaginative father and mother, even if, like myself, you have never composed a line of verse."
