Along the course of history’s arc, certain works aught to be penned, printed, painted or preserved. At that same moment, a person may may be found as just the one for said charge. This is all well and good, but what will they eat upon to have the strength to lift the pen or give in return for a place to lay the head? This is when the society reaches for the back pocket, as it were. We are, therefore, pleased to present these, the Commissioned Works of The Ink Society.
As with the first Ink Society commission, we continue to place a damper on the death knell of localism by releasing the second in the series. A tidy packet of paper with a local name and local face seemed just the thing. Hence, The Ink Society commissioned a collection of works on Newton Kansas by our own R. Eric Tippin to be printed in the form of a newspaper and scattered about town. If you are, by chance, quite pre-occupied with your own particular locale and cannot procure the ink and paper variety, the commission is included below for your perusal.
