THE SECOND QUARTER is the second quartet of poems by Otis Rubottom printed by his mother. THE FIRST QUARTER was printed in celebration of the poet's 25th birthday in 1997. THE SECOND QUARTER was printed in the spring of 2014 for the exhibition “REDUX” by Sibyl Rubottom at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library in La Jolla California. This quartet was printed and illustrated by the artist at Bay Park Press on Lenox paper in 14 point Bernhard Modern type and the titles in 30 point Century Nova type. This edition was handset by Morgan Miller III, whose hard work and conscientious attention to every detail are much appreciated. Thanks go to my Bay Park Press family for their support and to my family who provide the inspiration for all my work.
