Translations from the Unconscious by Clyde F. Smith

A chapbook of poetry with handmade paper & letter-pressed cover published by The Paper Plant. This title won the Southern Book Awards prize for alternative publishing in 1987. Clyde F. Smith is a Raleigh native who studied dance at UNC-G and received a doctorate in Cultural Studies in Education from Ohio State University.

The Paper Plant Press publishes broadsides, folders and chapbooks using hand-laid recycled paper and letterpress printing in conjunction with current desktop publishing technologies. Twenty published titles include award-winning alternative literature, a fine arts calendar, and a children's book. They “seek to present an alternative take on the publishing process, looking for non-academic, even non-literary influences, in a search for poetry as an oral art, in a belief that poetry is an essential and multifarious expression of life.” Currently it is based in Asheville, NC.
