Cathedral of Violets is a 100-page book of poetry and illustrations by NYC-based author Eleanor Bleier. Using wickedly romantic imagery in both her drawings and language, Bleier guides the reader through a deceptively-delicate spate of interlocking verse.

Design inspired by the Hanuman series and religious pocket-prayer books, Cathedral of Violets is a 3x4” paperback hand-assembled with a screen printed cover, interlaced vellum, and marbled accents.

IN THE CATHEDRAL OF VIOLETS

i would be that spider eating violets in hell 
lock me up lock me up lock me up 
for seasons long as a child’s 
with pearls of night and pressed petals 
and fairies of the damned 
insistent spirits 
all amongst my dream flowers
i would be an unlikely demon  
sleeping and waking in the cathedral of violets 
red and black and violets
warm blood flowing 
in the spiderweb that sparkles for y-o-u
