Nash is a powerful writer of prose and poetry. His latest poetry book is as dark as it gets. There Are Grown Men Willing to Die in Ties and Suits shakes readers through the torture of bleary-eyed early mornings, alcoholism and modern life as a heavily-tattooed smoker. A man trying to live a happy life in spite of the Texas heat, coming to grips with his own humanness.
The cover and interior artwork is derived from macro photographs of Nash's tattoos, treated, layered and colored in Photoshop. Interior spreads are manipulated from scans of Nash's handwriting. Trust me, it was not easy to get these photos or samples.
The book is available on Blurb. Photos courtesy of Nash.
