“He thought a book with paper pages would be too ordinary, so he came up with the idea of having the poems printed on birch bark. He got a supply of bark and shaved it into nearly translucent, paper-like sheets … the book is beautiful, peculiar, light as dust, and tiny -- about the size of a large pillbox.”

-- from The Library Book by Susan Orleans, page 134

(a cool physical connection, I think. I'd like to have a copy of this book of tree bark poems, wouldn't you?)
