IMG_5541

Amanda Earl’s The Book of Ruth is an 8.5×8.5″ chapbook of 6 sheets of cardstock, printed on one side. With a simple cover and back of reflective gold coloured cardstock, the chapbook is bound with loose binder rings.

Amanda Earl’s series, The Vispo Bible, which has been appearing in serial through various small presses, is an ongoing project in which Earl, confronting the Holy Bible, reshapes the Old and New Testaments. Book by book, chapter by chapter, Earl presents a re-imaged feminist vision of these patriarchal texts by digitally sculpting each chapter into strikingly sensual visual poems. Here is the Book of Ruth.

Simulacrum Press #16: ‘Fragmentum’ by derek beaulieu

SCN_0002

derek beaulieu’s Fragmentum is a 5×7″chapbook of 6 pages printed in an edition of 55 copies. A sturdy little chapbook printed entirely on cardstock and bound with a round head fastener for a slightly different navigational process.

In Fragmentum, beaulieu continues to probe the possibilities of his favorite medium, letraset. Moving away from his signature compositions consisting of recognizable letters which spread across the page like topographical landscapes, the pieces in Fragmentum embrace the broken, fragmented inevitability of the aging medium to present abstract forms where letter fragments combine to build a sculptural asemic language.
