10 Poemas / cummings, e.e. ; Augusto de Campos, translator., 1964

 Item
Identifier: CC-19407-19790
Scope and Contents

The critical text on the loose sheet by Augusto De Campos compares cummings' poetry to Mallarme's Un Coup de Des. De Campos notes that in contrast to lettrisme, in cummings' poetry the words are not dissociated from the meaning nor are letters valid by themselves. De Campos believes that the word expressionism (typographical gesturing) and disfigurement of the discursive in cummings' poetry find their best visual arts equivalent in the works of Paul Klee. This is the second edition, the first edition was published in 1960. Stored in Augusto de Campos box. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

13 Variations / Williams, Emmett., 1965

 Item
Identifier: CC-37687-39561
Scope and Contents

This work is also designated Mat Mot No.6. The piece consists of six words written by Gertrude Stein, "when this you see remember me," a color assigned to each word. Each print doubles the number of words from the previous plate such that in the final print the 24,516 words fuse together. The work was made by handstamping the work on 72 plates, and the integrated result visible only after 78 operations of the color press. The stamping was done at full speed to achieve the fusion of words, not the spreading of color. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

 Item
Identifier: CC-20097-20491
Scope and Contents Designated minibooks number six. This is the third edition of the booklet. jw curry writes on the WEB: "15 Shakespeare Kaku was given a three-voice and organ live performance by Konkrete Canticle (Bob Cobbing, Paula Claire and Michael Chant) on April 23rd 1972 at a Shakespeare Birthday Week Gala Concert in Southwark Cathedral. The text presents fifteen spatially sequential typographical assemblages, I refer to them as figures, that are so partial as to be all but illegible. Two exceptions are the first and last figures, the first being a compacted version of the title page minus the word kaku, "shake" overprinted above and overprinted "spear". Although neither is cleanly present the expected closure Shakespeare can easily be made. Cobbing's final figure reprises the spear but does so to draw emphasis to "ear." The six-page text sequence begins on the recto with three horizontal figures, a double page spread with one vertical figure opposite to three more horizontal figures, a...
