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.

T Y P O E S I E

You can't say that French editors don't take mail art and Vispo seriously.

This is a fantastic book on the typographical experiments with poetry, so another essential work for those who are interested in the visual aspect of poetrty and frankly there is only one network who is keen on this and that's the mail art one!

Size: 16,5 X 22 cm

Pages: 468 (!)

Editors: Imprimerie Nationale in 1993

And guess what, the French are less narrow minded than the Belgian context because in this book was reproduced without remorse one of the works of Paul De Vree (see next entry), who made a visual play with the word REVOLUTION (in Dutch)

This work was also reproduced in the Vispo catalogue of Luc Fierens, who is still in contact with the widow of De Vree.
