This is my January In box so far. MANY thanks for all the mail - I will be replying to EVERYONE as you know :-)
Mail on its way - INCLUDING 14 copies for VISPO book 2 from John Bennett and I
I think Vispo is in the air - so from my FAB pile I am posting some Visual Poetry received bearing in mind the collaborative books on the go:
From Samuel Montalvetti (Argentina) - a series of mini vispo artists books:
Inside View - black and white beauty :
Words afloat. Words in Color.
From Reed Altemus - a series of VISPO works, 6, numbered 29/30.
What should I read (Reed) next? An original collage.
From Dr Baron Joseph A. Uphoff, Jr. (Colorado) - my first package from the Arjuna Library. This piece is from the Journal of Regional Criticism.
"There might have been a moment of uneasiness
when everything listening heard everybody
speaking and employing other forms of rhetoric
such as broadcasting or sports cars
racing. Pushing all the right buttons...
- thank you!
From John Bennett:
I obviously CANT leave out the Bar Code from Dean Marks - it survived intact - that in itself is not small feat. LinePo? You heard it hear first! OK HERE!!! :-))))
From Diane Keys - weirdly this piece was lost in the mail, but was resent and is no longer a loss lost :-). While the paint gently weeps.
From Angie Cope - the photograph belies its size - this is an ATC which employs vispo and architecture - my current favorite subjects :-)
From Svenha Wahl - a wonderful play of image and text - stepping over the stones of your heart and mind.
I cant leave out one of my FAV's - Guido Vermeulen - "How to move a rock when you are hungry"
Or Katerina of course :-) I thought # 405 of 365 qualified as vispo :-))!
ZALOP comes in chocolate too :-)) - from Heleen da Vaan - Heleen - chocolate VISPO - each letter is a separate box of chocolate. It comes with a warning - Content Maybe Melts * only exception: When you eat it immediately :-). A ZALOP Chocolate Performance - a first for sure :-) X
From Erni - aka Choctea - a LARGE package - I'm putting it in the SWEEEEET section. It arrived very late December, but I'm sneaking it in here too.
A FAB book of here - right here! Anyone for Roast Duck?
Just in case you were interested to know what is in some of your envelopes - I cut up another book.
And another painting
