Stunning presentation of poems by Serge Gavronsky illuminated by Constance Lane. Visual poetry that makes a book within the book.
Fascinating experiment in which an artist takes the pages of the poet and creates a new inter-media reality. Read and feel the poems and the visual work.
Chax Press has always sought to bring a sense of expanded possibility
to the book, acted out in design, typography. sometimes materials and
structures. In this book, author Gavronsky and artist Lane have done the work for us, creating a hybrid book that is at once spontaneously un-perfected, and visually and poetically perfect in its own way.
Poetry. Hybrid. Art.
