Jack Spicer – 4 Broadsides

Letterpressed Illustrated by Kevin Killian, Norma Cole, Paul Klinger, and Kyle Schlesinger

Printed by C.J. Martin on a Heidelberg Windmill
Illustrated by Kevin Killian, Norma Cole, Paul Klinger, and Kyle Schlesinger

We’re so thrilled to offer for sale a suite of four letterpress broadsides featuring unpublished poems by Jack Spicer, illustrated by Kevin Killian, Norma Cole, Paul Klinger, and Kyle Schlesinger!

The proceeds from sales of these broadsides helped fund the printing of our first major art book, The Collages of Helen Adam, which is NOW AVAILABLE. Helen Adam was one of the participants in Spicer’s Poetry as Magic Workshop, and her collages made quite a splash in the recent Jess/Duncan exhibit.

The deluxe edition of this suite (SOLD OUT), includes a letterpress print of a crayon portrait of Billy the Kid by Norma Cole, who was (if you’re late to read Jarnot’s Robert Duncan bio) a familiar of the Jess/Duncan household, which power couple published the original chapbook of Spicer’s Billy the Kid under their Enkidu Surrogate imprint in 1959 while they were living in Stinson Beach. The Helen Adam art book will contain photos taken during this time, at the very house in fact.

Broadside: Tyrone Williams

 

 

 

Produced for a reading at Mountain Fold Books in Colorado Springs, for this 9″x15″ letterpress broadside, Tyrone gave us an excerpt of a poem & an excerpt of an essay on Amiria Baraka & value. You want this… & if you’re in the area, you can have it for free if you’re in the audience on Oct. 27, 2016.

Further Other Book Works is thrilled to offer a suite of prints designed & letterpressed by poet josé felipe alvergue, in conjunction with our release of his second full length book, gist : rift : drift : bloom.

gist : rift : drift : bloom is an eco-historical meditation on the relationship between landscape and language. The book was composed between Buffalo, New York and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. As a sort of interstice, definitions give pause to the continued evolution of language in the poetry, where a word is planted early. Compressed by language, or carried off by sketches and through space, these words bloom elsewhere.

By turns poems, field guides, & pastoral sketches, alvergue’s prints are not as much broadsides from his book as they are expansions of its field. As ecologicical texture, these prints interact across motion and temporality— the motion of branches and stasis of trees, birds in flight and the traces of their eventual absence, the emergence of architectural sketches and grids blown across the Midwestern landscape. In an articulation of surface-distress, bold type and scratched type, bracketed language, and isolated utterances work closely in punctuated stanzas that have shifted across the paper. Drift and rift are here illustrated—the migration of samples in the many currents, the winds—and the surface-changes in time.

The process: These prints were letterpressed on a Vandercook #219, at the Minnesota Center for the Book Arts. The print collages also incorporate color inkjet versions of the Potsdam stone sample collected near the Wisconsin Dells, ca. 1900.

Please view the presale brochure for more details and pictures. Price is for the full suite, which includes a copy of alvergue’s book, but the book and prints are also available individually on the shop page.

Klinger – Alligator Suite

17” x 22” giclée print | Signed and numbered | Printed in an edition of 40

17” x 22” giclée print | Signed and numbered | Printed in an edition of 40

Further Other Book Works is thrilled to offer a suite of giclée prints featuring original art by Houston poet and artist, Paul Klinger.

Imaged from the original monoprints, Klinger’s Alligator Suite is a death mask, a cartography, an epic micro history, an elegy, and a protest. It marks the death of “Snowman,” an alligator Klinger discovered gunshot in the tall grass somewhere outside Houston, but Klinger’s work is no simple act of specimen collection.

Instead, this suite is the burial shroud.

The process: Klinger inked the gator where it lay and made prints directly from its body. The original monoprints bear evidence of a process literally on the ground: bits of grass and mud cling to the paper, which everywhere shows creasing from contact with the animal’s form. Our edition makes no effort to hide the topographic effects of this process (most immediately visible in the shadows around the tail in the second panel above).

The result is luminous.

Brenda Iijima & C.J. Martin – Broadside

Brenda Iijima & C.J. Martin | 2013 | 18″ x 17″ Giclée Print | Signed

The third in a series of broadsides engaging visual art by poets. For this collaboration, I sentBrenda Iijima a poem and she responded with not just a collage, but an entire broadside design, complete with wood paneled background! (In the original, it’s real wood cut thin enough to be mounted with glue.) My poem is from a short sequence called “Nuclear Envoi,” written in early 2013, and it picks up on (among other things) lines from Helen Adam’s childhood reader–as does Brenda’s collage, which contains scans of pages from that book.

Printed in an edition of 25 copies.

The fourth in a series of broadsides engaging visual art by poets. This one was printed on the occasion of a reading I gave with Charles Alexander at Tiny Park Gallery in Austin, TX, for the Fun Party reading series. There’s audio of that reading here. The text is the first section of a poem called “Land,” and both my poem and Julia’s collage were completed in the aftermath of the tornado that took my father and grandmother.
