Scope and Contents

This book reprints, in dazzling, different, typographical layouts, film scripts and criticisms by avant garde writers and poets of the 20th century. The book, which is designed with several different colored papers and typefaces, received a prize for Arts and Essays from the National Center of Cinematography in France. Typewriter poetry is present on the film scenario of Fortunato Depero and sound poetry in the script by Francois Dufrene. Picture poems are depicted in the Fluxus film scripts by Robert Filliou and George Brecht. Villegle's script includes his typical ideograms. Lawrence Weiner's script is uncharacteristically dense in content and more visual/verbal than his usual works. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
