The Marriage of Mass Publishing and Self-Publishing

n the days of Washington and Napoleon,
Before Six Sigma and Toyota Motors manufactur’d its infernal machines
according to the edicts of consistency,
I did each copy of my self-published work by hand;
If I saw a need for improvement after two or three copies were scribed,
I simply made the changes on the remaining copies, whether this meant
I was transposing words, lines, verses, pages or plates.
Truly, I was inspir’d by the Artistic & Creativity of Los, Urthona in man’s form.

If hand type-setting and engraving your work is a fate you cannot bear,
Subsidy-publishing is perhaps the path for you.
Even the contrivances of the Word Processor & GBC binding machines,
Cannot make self-publishing too great a Task to contemplate
Subsidy-Publishing balances the Contraries of Mass Publishing & Self-publishing.
