Edward Kulemin’s Cash Register Poems are presented in a simple 3×5.5″ single stapled bundle. 9 pages, full colour, printed on one side–replicating the common sight of end of the night receipts collected and stapled at our favourite stores.
This collection of asemic writing brings us into the heart of our purchasing centered lives where our movements leave a paper trail. Kulemin, having picked up this paper we accumulate, has reengaged these non-creative sites of record with invigorating graffiti–in this case the language of exasperation, and hope.

Volodymyr Bilyk’s Lisa Simpson Poems is a 40 page chapbook in which each page has been recovered from various discarded books. Produced in an edition of 50.
Originally intended to be paired with photographs for a project that fell through, the poems in this chapbook were delivered to the editor superimposed onto images of Lisa Simpson–hence the title. Moving to text as ambient image, Bilyk’s poems have been placed on pages from discarded books. The poems themselves are difficult to describe. The writing process which Bilyk employs–an ongoing metamorphosis of certain, now unrecognizable, texts–gives us poems which thrash language with itself. Remaining composed, the poems bleed images.
