THE ART OF BOOKS & SMALL PRINT PUBLICATIONS

This is a blog on artist books, artist notebooks, magazines, poetry editions and other small print publications. Like FRIOUR is the Icelandic word for peace, BOKLIST are the Icelandic words for book (bok) and art (list). This is also a group blog in which those who are invited can upload their own books and/or comments.

B L A C K B I R D


This is the 7th anthology of BLACKBIRD,

an amazing project developed by David Stone.

Starting point was a small poem of Paul Celan, one of the most important poets of the 20th century.

Celan was a tragic figure who committed suicide because of survival guilt.

While the first anthologies were still linked with the horrors of world war 2 and the nazi death camps, the following compilations went beyond that and turned Blackbird into contemporary artists' screams against the sky painted with the red blood of past, present and future wars.

And the project continues because after all war seems to continue too !!! (GV)

Size: 22 X 28 cm

Pages: 188
