Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.Magnetic Poems by Matthew Stolte

Binding Saddle-stitch Paperback
Interior Ink Full color
Dimensions (inches) 9.0 wide × 7.0 tall
These clean, crisp-looking visual poems stand in contrast to Matthew Stolte’s recent work which makes much use of smeared paint and ink, partial forms, layerings, and other devices to create a veritable storm of lettristic forms and words. In these Magnetic Poems the colorful letter-forms are stable as found, and merely arranged on galvanized metal sheets. There is, however, an inherent instability in the original pieces, in that anyone could move the magnetic letters around. So this book can be seen as a moment stopped in time, as these pieces no doubt look different today. Because even moving them around is likely to jostle their arrangement. Thus this book is a talisman to the inherent protean nature of poetry and of the language of which it is made. -John M. Bennett

Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.etceteras by Marilyn R. Rosenberg

Publisher Luna Bisonte Prods

Binding Coil
Interior Ink Full color
Dimensions (inches) 8.5 wide × 11.0 tall

etceteras was gleaned from fragments of visual poems, images of poetry bowls, and collage remnants from bookworks created by artist/visual poet Marilyn R. Rosenberg over the past 25+ years. Originally based on her bookwork named "5", from which many middle layers for etceteras pages can be found, Marilyn R. Rosenberg creates a totally new spatial and meaningful experience that evolves and grows through drawing, color, collage, semic and asemic writing, creating not only a visual feast for the senses but an implied narrative.  etceteras is a gorgeous artist’s book with strong multi-dimensional and layered pages.  It's unique, hard to put down, and hard not to pick up again and again.

Publisher LUNA BISONTE PRODS

Binding Perfect-bound Paperback
Interior Ink Black & white
Dimensions (inches) 8.5 wide × 11.0 tall
These “asemic” texts by Carlos Martínez Luis are basically completely “semic”: that is, they communicate to us by means of glyphs that have forms resonant of the human body, of human culture, and of human consciousness and memory. In the second part of this work, frequent use is made of a well-known drawing by Alfred Jarry of Père Ubu as if it were a linguistic glyph presented in a different way on each occasion with differing expressive ends. The Ubu glyph serves to open up a way of communicating with these fascinating texts, of reading and seeing them with a simultaneity which enriches the possibilities of understanding and of the experience of perception. The poet, artist, essayist, scholar, and curator Carlos Martínez Luis has created a work which pullulates with interpretive possibilities, beautiful, and which enhances the capacity of human understanding in a rare and uncommon way. -John M. Bennett
