Repetitive Poems by Catherine Vidler is an elegant collection of 4 visual poems, each in full colour. Measuring 8.5 x 5.5″, Repetitive Poems is printed on card stock and bound with a single fastener in a limited edition of 45 chapbooks.
With Repetitive Poems, Catherine Vidler gives us her love of colour and meticulous forms, honing in on the effects of repetition applied to geometric forms. Repetition, of course, is an important poetic device, harkening back to the earliest oral traditions–repetition, yes–but repetitive? Repetitive connotes monotony, something these powerful crystalline logos refuse.

Hart Broudy’s new collection, ‘Erth’ collects eight unbound 5×7″ pieces of visual/concrete poetry.
The conspicuously absent A in the title of Hart Broudy’s collection Erth gives a hint towards how the reader will encounter the alphabet in this series. While Earth can refer to both soil and planet, and certainly the textures within these pieces connect to such references, the Erth that is presented by Broudy delivers us to a different plain.

Latenza is a 8.5×14″ broadside by Francesco Aprile. It has been produced in an edition of 50.
In Latenza, Francesco Aprile’s glitch work harnesses the moment between desire’s push and the point of arrival, redefining that very point of arrival where the fulfillment of action has already gone too far. Considered in the field of visual poetics might this be an echo of the space between word and meaning, thought and writing? Suspended in the between where mood dominates, there is a sense of moving toward an ambient poetics.
