A. . . 1917 garage on the former Seavern Estate in Hartford’s West End is an example of what were known as “automobile houses.” (Mary Falvey/Hartford Preservation Alliance)

Address: 1365 Asylum Ave.

Owner: University of Hartford

Architect: Philip Lippincott Goodwin

What the alliance said: “These early “automobile houses” for large estates were influenced by the designs of earlier carriage houses, including having an apartment for a chauffeur. (The Seavern Estate later became the Hartford College for Women and is now owned by the University of Hartford. The university is now seeking to sell the property.) Sadly, Hartford continues to lose these outbuildings through unpermitted and unapproved demolition. Often old carriage barns and early garages suffer from deferred maintenance and demolition by neglect. In addition to documenting the history of our streets and neighborhoods, these buildings can be repurposed as auxiliary residential units, studios, and home offices.”

A team of University of Hartford faculty and students went to Lithuania last summer in search of the burial grounds of Matilda Olkin — a young college student and poet killed by Nazi sympathizers. They found the grave and hope to share Matilda’s story with other students through a documentary.

It was daunting to walk into an oceanic gallery space streaming with over a hundred photography art books facing up, until I pulled up a stool and opened Black Threads from Meng Chiao (TIS Books, Brooklyn, NY, 2015), a collaboration by the photographer, Justine Kurland, and the poet, John Yau, then one other, Cuny Janssen: Yoshino  (snoeck, Cologne, GR), right up to being told the gallery was about to close for the evening. I am bound to return at least once before the exhibition closes on February 17, 2016. – Donna Fleischer

Cuny Janssen: Yoshino

The widest pages, or leaves*, of the staggered, multi-wide book, Yoshino, are those of full-color photographs bleeding off all four sides. These approximate 18 inches of an arm’s length from gutter to foredge, and so may be turned only slowly. Other narrower ones are almost see-through, frosted overlays of various widths with one-sided, dense, generously leaded, black texts of prose and haibun by Bashō (Travel Record of Weatherbeaten Skeleton), Saigyō, and others:

This simple abode

where I don’t even use

all of the clear, clean water

trickling down

between the rocks.

– Saigyō

All in all inspired this poem:

trees’ leaves flap

i turn slowly as if

departing, when

only just arrived

with so sudden a wind.

– Donna Fleischer
