About the Book
For poet Susan McMaster, "Art is the eyes of poetry." Lizard Love presents 43 interpretations of her words selected from three decades of collaboration with artists Ellen Drennan, Claude Dupuis, Pat Durr, Gwen Frankton, Garage Gallery & Coffee, Marty Gervais, Alrick Huebener, Roberta Huebener, Peter McClure, Juliana McDonald, Morel McMaster, Betty Page, Heather Spears, Mary Tougas, Robert Verrall, and Paula Zoubek. McMaster's publications include some two dozen poetry books, anthologies, and wordmusic recordings.
Sumac Books is the personal imprint of poet Susan McMaster. Over the past three decades, she has published many small private publications in editions of 20-200 copies, such as a Christmas series of poem cards, broadsheets, chapbooks, wordmusic recordings, and family memoirs under the names Sumac, Sumac Publishing, and Sumac Editions. In the current era of on-line and PID publishing, the poet has established the name Sumac Books in order to publish her out-of-print and hard-to-get collections, along with new works by herself and others. Lizard Love: Artists Scan Poems by Susan McMaster is the first in this new series.
