Thomas Brush is an award winning Seattle poet who has written several books and for several distinguished journals.

This influence is evident in the poems included in Even Money. This interesting production from the Sea Pen Press has a blue handmade light-and-shade watermarked paper covers that are sewn in a non-adhesive concertina fashion to the text. The orange and brown decorated endpapers were created by Neal Bonham of the press using colored paper pulps in a decorative technique that he developed.
