An overall presentable copy of this scarce artists' book 
with a sturdy binding and clean contents. 

Artist’s book, its illustrated cover depicts the titles of the eleven poems,
11 b/w plates reproducing the original manuscript of each poem
except for one whose original was lost and here appears as a recreation.
The poems are characterised by the lack of punctuation
and by the irregular letters orientation; the texts are mainly organised
in the shape of a rectangle, but some of them groups of words
compose more complex geometrical shapes.
