Atticus/Finch balks emphatically at faux notions of newness. Rather, they present to you beautiful and affordable editions in the splendid aura of their fresh new-ity. Help them help you rabidly consume the future of poetry as it unfolds before your very eyes. They greatly appreciate your patronage.
