The place to begin the journey to discover a new kind of book—the Limited Edition Handmade Poetry Art Book.
PABS was established by Poet Gerda Govine Ituarte and Artist Luis Ituarte, to create and nourish an international appetite for poets and artists that traverses cultural borders in innovative ways. "Oh, Where is My Candle Hat?" is the first arrival that launches the opportunity to enroll selected poets and artists to journey with us and share their unique talents.
Participation is by invitation only, and the Art Book Station website will provide the opportunity to obtain our Limited Edition Handmade Poetry Art Books.
