FIÈVRE by John M Bennett - a TLP from Luna Bisonte Prods

I am experimenting with blogging on IUOMA-Ning again to highlight the photos I upload to the site. It isn't necessarily the easiest endeavor but seems, perhaps, worth the trouble.

For this experimental post I am going to share John M. Bennett's TLP FIÈVRE in detail. Above is the cover. Below is the rest of this work of visual poetry. Enjoy!…

from Dean - 5/19/2016

from Juana - 5/13/2016

This wonderful calligraphic / enso piece features an aphorism by Juana's husband. It's quite a wonderful saying. Although you cannot smell it, this piece smells wonderful, too, as if it has been in a room where some great-smelling incense has been burning. 

Thanks,…
