The highlight of the meeting was a presentation by Eric Appleby, Co-founder, Designer and Publisher of Forklift, Ohio: A Journal of Poetry, Cooking & Light Industrial Safety published right in Northside and lately drawing national attention.** Amid a display of Forklift issues that traced its history, Eric spoke informally about how the idea first came about and how the periodical has evolved. First created in 1994, Forklift is a lovingly designed, carefully thought out and wonderfully eccentric publication that has just released its 26th issue. Previous issues have required corkscrews to open, been inspired by discovered corrugated cardboard and a box of matches, and included hand drawn covers. The creative spark for the latest issue came when Eric discovered a 19th-century volume of recipes for perfumes and much more at a Friends of the Public Library sale. Should you need a Varnish for Artists recipe, you will want to pick up a copy. Caveat for the weak kneed: the recipe calls for 4 ounces of ground glass.
