Now known as one of the most significant American writers of the 19th century, and perhaps the nation’s greatest poet, Walt Whitman started off working as an apprentice printer at a newspaper, at only 11 years of age. In 1838, he founded his own weekly newspaper on Long Island, reporting and writing stories, printing the paper, and even delivering it on horseback by himself. By the early 1840s, he had broken into professional journalism. It was in the 1850s that his focus turned to poetry, and in 1855 he published his collection, ‘Leaves of Grass’, inspired by the things he found fascinating: the crowds of New York, the modern inventions the public marvelled over, and the raucous politics of the 1850s. Seminal as it is now, then, his book went largely unnoticed.

Each tea towel is approximately 19" wide by 27.5" in height and is made of 100% USA ethically sourced cotton. Each towel is stitched on all four sides and includes a cotton loop for easy hanging.
