// last box of these priceless picked up from William this past summer
The most recent collection of writings by William Parker, self-published in 2015. With great poetic insight – as ever – luminous gems abound. As listening to his music is among our most treasured time spent engaged in the spirit, so are reading his words.
"Scrapbook: Notes and Blueprints is an open-faced journal I've comprised of poems, sketches, and essays about music, philosophy and aesthetics. Also included are reviews and liner notes I have authored. Some of the work has been published previously, in the form of liner notes. The historical commentary, by a former slave, was gleaned from material in the public domain." –William Parker
And, there is a new collection of his work being organized to publish in 2022.
