S&G Chapbook Series
Visual artists are paired with writers in this continuing ART + LITERATURE series. Twelve images and twleve written works (poems or short prose) are featured in each book.
The Outside Twelve by Mary O. Stevens and Crystal H. Rogers
This seventh volume of The Solomon & George Chapbook Series features the fiber art of Mary O. Stevens and the poetry of Crystal H. Rogers. They have been friends for many years, sharing interests in the natural habitats near their rural homes. They also share a concern for the preservation of the environment—for plants, animals, and humans. There was a direct collaboration on the project, as the artist and writer spent time together pairing their works. Placed on facing pages, twelve works of fiber art are accompanied by twelve poems to create The Outside Twelve.
A Gift of Air by Allyson Comstock and Peter Huggins
This sixth volume of The Solomon & George Chapbook Series features the art of Allyson Comstock and the poetry of Peter Huggins. There was not a direct collaboration on this project, however the artist and writer are acquaintances and were provided with each other's work to determine the poems selected and the order of the art placement. Placed on facing pages, twelve handmade paper pieces are accompanied by twelve poems to create A Gift of Air.
The Wake of the Year by Gloe Herbert Dyne and Ken Autrey
This fifth volume of The Solomon & George Chapbook Series features the art of Gloe Herbert Dyne and the poetry of Ken Autrey. When they decided to collaborate, the two worked together to select paintings and poems that in some way seem complementary. However, the poems were not written in direct response to the paintings; nor should the paintings be considered illustrations of the poems. Rather, The Wake of the Year simply combines a series of studies in two media from artists who grew up in Auburn and have remained close friends from an early age.
Mississippi Delta Memories by Lane Gower and Claire T. Feild
This fourth volume of The Solomon & George Chapbook Series features the work of visual artist Lane Gower and the writings of Clare T. Feild. Feild grew up in Yazoo City, Mississippi and shares some childhood memories as creative nonfiction. Gower created unique photographic images to interpret Feild's writings in Mississippi Delta Memories.
From Whispering Woods by Frank Uhlig and Effie Albrecht Pilouini
This third volume of The Solomon & George Chapbook Series features the work of visual artist Frank Uhlig and the writings of Effrosini Albrecht Pilouni. Uhlig is a photographer who enjoys capturing the beauty of nature. Albrecht Pilouni was inspired to write prose to accompany the twelve stunning full-color photographs in From Whispering Woods.
Stories in Stained Glass by M. Kelly Haynes and William O. Haynes
This second volume of The Solomon & George Chapbook Series pairs a huband and wife team, artist M. Kelly Haynes and poet William O. Haynes. Kelly Haynes is a stained glass artist who produces beautiful works of art that hang in the windows of her home. William photographed twleve of those windows and composed a poem speficially to match each stained glass piece. The result is Stories in Stained Glass.

Carcache is best known for her fiction writing but she also creates poetry and song lyrics.
