Received from John M. Bennett, master of vispo...SOUL!

A fantastic envelope, full of the art of JMB arrived today.

This first pamphlet has the same title as a art magazine in Greece: SOUL!

John takes us on a collaboration with another artist, too:

mysterious...floating gently...then opening to a full page asemic statement:

and ending note:

Two artists in collaboration, are these they?

And then there is yet another boekie from John:

This is special!

The pages open, however to view the others, it is necessary to "caress" the edges and cut the folds. Nostalgia sets in, and I recall editions of Greek books in the 1970's when we still had to slice the folded sheets in order to "open" the pages...a book needed to be "caressed" before being able to read it.

Now the other pages reveal themselves for "reading":

Thank you, John...'love doing this. And many thanks for the enclosed card, too!

Truly great soul-filled Bennett treasures arrived in Greece today...GOTIJ! xx

Definitely a contender for "Legends of Vispo." I like the middle piece (concrete and asemic overlay) especially.

Yow is right--wonderful several times over, John.  I have to call this a feast, Katerina, and am very glad to see it, thanks.
