Joshua Smith: By (2021)

By by Joshua Smith is a chapbook featuring eighteen minimal and concrete poems.

One or two words wrestle and fall apart before they quite win the point. Yet something stares out at you from these smashed-up vowels and consonants, like a traffic accident, or a Chamberlain sculpture, an eye or an oh.

- Aram Saroyan

Broken, partial, fractured, distorted—is this poetry in the age of CAPTCHA? In thirty-seven words, Joshua Smith makes us feel the possibilities—and vulnerabilities—of poetic language in contemporary culture.

- Johanna Drucker

Sometimes it’s like we’re in a lab, looking at a language isolated on slides. Sometimes we’re a universe away, looking at the language through a telescope, catching it in small events. By is a book of economy, humor and vision. I have already used more words, describing it, than it itself contains. And am no nearer to explaining away the stillness at the center of it.

- Josh Bell

Derek Beaulieu: Brevflodslette (2021)

Brevflodslette is a concrete poem made with Letraset by Derek Beaulieu. A6 leporello publication printed on 250 gsm recycled paper. Edition of 48 copies. Published by Non Plus Ultra, 2021.

Whirlpools, the many sounds of the water or the river of letters. It gurgles and ripples, hisses and hums, and not only the title of the piece suggests a correspondence between the information transported by the river, but by the letter and by time. We're on our way somewhere. All this can be read and seen in Derek Beaulieu's beautiful visual and spatial poetry, and especially in Brevflodslette which continues to fold-out and unfold in consistent and inciting ways. The poet's style is recognizable, his voice clear, the reading of the poem not easy to finish.

– Martin Glaz Serup
