    DescriptionThe epic made simple. The miracle in the mundane. One day, while browsing an antique store in Helena, Montana, photographer Tyler Knott Gregson stumbled upon a vintage Remington typewriter for sale. Standing up and using a page from a broken book he was buying for $2, he typed a poem without thinking, without planning, and without the ability to revise anything. He fell in love. Three years and almost one thousand poems later, Tyler is now known as the creator of the "Typewriter Series: " a striking collection of poems typed onto found scraps of paper or created via blackout method. "Chasers of the Light "features some of his most insightful and beautifully worded pieces of work--poems that illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.

    Review quote
    "Like many people I know, I fell in love with Tyler Knott Gregson's poetry via Instagram. Maybe it's the allure of his Typewriter Series (awesome poems and quotes typed on vintage-looking parchment paper) or the fact that he posts just about every day so people always have something to see, but in the end I think it's his raw talent for striking the chords of emotion within us that keep us coming back" --The Blonde Vegan "His Haikus inspire in their simplicity because it has become rare to find beauty in the mundane. His poems are capturing in their tone and in the way he utilizes his words. His photography is simply breathtaking, to say the least." --The Society Cynic "There are writers and poets who just get it. Then, there are writers and poets who are so on point, you have no choice but to feel like maybe they've been reading your diary. If you're an avid Tumblr user, or just a fan of knowing you're not alone, you might be familiar with the work of Tyler Knott Gregson. Not only is Gregson a well-versed poet (pun intended) but he's also an incredible artist, photographer and has a big heart for charity." --Buzznet "With over 30,000 Facebook fans and more than 100,000 Tumblr followers, Gregson has definitely hit a nerve with his short-yet-poignant pieces. In an age of goofy Vine videos, memes and Instagram dinner-plate photos, poetry seems an unlikely addition to the community of web shares and posts. Gregson's poetry, though, isn't about flashy design or snappy humor. To read the comments on his blog and Facebook pages, it's plain to see that his words genuinely resonate with his fans." --Elsewhere NYC "I LOVE THIS! I follow Tyler Knott Gregson on Twitter and Tumblr. He's amazingly talented!" --Feeding My Addiction Book Reviews "His poetry always catches me a bit off-guard and makes me reflect - which is why I like it so much. If you need a dose of romantic and moving poetry in your life, I highly recomm
