Great Asemic Concrete Poetry from Bruno in Espana

These look much greater in person an amazing combination of text and imagery.  It is called The Roar Series and everything echoes the story (written in English AND Spanish on the reverse side) by James Joyce A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.He tells me it is a trade secret how he prints the text on heavy cardstock but maybe one day I will get it out of him.  Thank you… Continue

MA from Russell Manning

I could not be a bigger fan of Russell's work.  I treasure the pieces I have received from him over the years.  I don't think there is any work, save Bifidus', that is more polar opposite to mine and it fascinates me.
