Rare Books and Special Collections houses a number of poetry books inspired by our world's oceans, notably some beautiful small and fine-press limited editions featuring British Columbian and Canadian poets. These include books by artist Andrea Taylor, and by presses such as Blackstone Press, Red Tower Bookworks, and the Aliquando Press. Here is just a small selection of the ocean-inspired poetry books at RBSC.
