Illustrator Allen Crawford has turned Whitman’s poem "Song of Myself" into a sprawling, 256-page work of art. The densely-handwritten text and illustrations intermingle in a way that’s both surprising and wholly in tune with the spirit of the poem—exuberant, rough, and wild. "Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself" is a sensational reading experience, an artifact in its own right, and a masterful tribute to the Good Gray Poet.
