THIS FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14 JESSICA HIEMSTRA’s beloved DesignTO Festival installation (and love-letter to poets), The Sky is Falling, is coming down. Jessica will be on site at Knife Fork Book, Canada’s only ALL POETRY bookstore, 11AM-6PM, removing the watercolour sky, piece by piece. Fragments of the sky will be on sale for $25-$85; Jessica will stitch and pin poems into the panels as they are removed from the ceiling. For the first 30 people, there will also be roses. If you have a love-poem you want written out, if you want a piece of the sky to be your love-poem, if you want to give yourself a piece of sky, please come: the sky is yours.
Also: 40% of sales will go to directly to Knife Fork Book, the independent bookstore with a giant heart.
