Leaves of Grass

No Comments

Leaves of Grass was a landmark of queer literature, a book in which – 168 years ago – Walt Whitman self-published pretty openly homoerotic poetry, including his masterpiece “Song of Myself”, which is quoted here. The title lettering on this piece was (possibly) done by Whitman himself. It was used on his first edition of the book, and it seems like something he would’ve done himself. I definitely appreciate that, which is why I appropriated it for this piece.
