Herbert Scott was an American poet and publisher celebrated for his work and beloved by his students and friends. For several decades, he taught at Western Michigan University as a professor of creative writing. His poems were widely published. They are noted for their vivid imagery, their humility, their eye for everyday life and its subtle beauties and tragedies. In the Palm of Space epitomizes Scott’s style of poetry. The collection includes dozens of short poems, some with several stanzas, others just a line. Taken together, they showcase some of the strongest American poetry of the last several decades. This limited first edition is also noteworthy for its fine craftsmanship and scarcity. Published by the Sutton Hoo Press, an exceptional private press operating in rural Minnesota, this volume of Naming represents the necessary skill and artistry of the centuries’ old craft of bookmaking, brought into the twenty-first century.
