Atwha signifies 'a trois,' depicted by 2 sexual images, one a photograph, the other a typed poem with x's & o's. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

Identifier: CC-27400-28443

This book was compiled by jw curry from unpublished (?) concrete poems of bp Nichol's early work which were composed by typings or writings. curry had access to these works through cataloging of Nichol's archive. These works emphasize the diversity and intelligence of Nichol's typewriter poetry; the calligraphic works are presented with far less examples. The cited authors in this book consist of those whom Nichol composed a poem in their style or as an homage to them. The covers of the book have been collaged with a dust jacket created from an overprinting of a cover by Coach House Press entitled, 'New Wave Canada.' -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
