12 typescripts of concrete poetry (signed and numbered artist's book).
Limited edition of 100 copies signed and hand numbered.
Elizabeth Lebon writes concrete poetry, and is also a performance artist. Her work is primarily concerned with the production of texts-objects. She has written, typed and sewn as many words onto baking paper and cash-register rolls as onto blank pages of A4. The resulting text-objects give thoughts material, aural and autonomous form, and are reminiscent of both the precepts of Ulises Carrión's The new art of making books, and of the work of metaphysical poets of the English Renaissance. The author's poetic language—and constellations of ideas—transport us, so that the book form, and the typography on the page, surprise and delight.
