EE2: DDRAIG – Clara Daneri

DDRAIG is a calligram in which the description of the “second plague” from the middle-Welsh tale “The Story of Lludd and Llefelys” is presented in the form of the Baner Cymru.

Strictly limited to 23 copies.

EE3: EON GAPE – Franco Cortese

EON GAPE is a perfect anagram of page one from Finnegans Wake by James Joyce.

Moreover, it anagrams each line of the original text, in turn, reforming puns and portmanteaus, to produce a playful poem from playful prose.

Strictly limited to 33 copies.

SOLD OUT


EE5: TWO FORMS – Lucy Dawkins

Two letter-count poems.

The poem “Doll” uses only four-letter words.

The poem “Hourglass Figure” patterns its letter-counts symmetrically, in the form: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10

Strictly limited to 25 copies.

Printed on metallic gold paper.

SOLD OUT



EE6: FOOLSPOKE – Sacha Archer

Performed during the summer of 2019.

The documentation of this event-poem, manipulated and arranged, culminated in the video Foolspoke (tinyurl.com/yxcra3d3), which is essentially an interrogation of the sound poem.

Strictly limited to 25 copies.

SOLD OUT


EE7: CIRCUIT– derek beaulieu

From the author: All of the visual poems in “Circuit” were created using a single sheet of Letraset; every poem contains characters on that sheet and nothing else. The vocabulary of the suite was limited to that single sheet and as I created each poem I constantly further constrained the available diction I had available to me for further pieces — until, eventually, I had used all available, usable characters from that single sheet; an ever-reducing constraint. Each letter was placed one at a time, delicately balancing this notoriously finicky medium into a series of gears and wheels. “Circuit” belies semantic meaning in favour of grace, metricality, delicacy, and symmetry, applying the standards of lyricism to concretism. 

Limited to 41 copies.

SOLD OUT


EE9: BACTERIA – Luke Bradford

In this leaflet, the first poem features only those letters in the word “bacteria”; the second poem features only those letters not in “bacteria”.
