4 3/4 x 7 1/2 in., wrappers.
As If It Is At All compiles Simon Cutts’s “transferable” ( i.e. realizable in various media, whether print, sculpture, artists' book, etc.) poems of the past decade, in the fashion of such previous books as Seepages (The Jargon Society, 1989), and A Smell of Printing (Granary Books, 2000). Frequently made in the Concrete idiom, or similar, and with an appetite for concision, clarity, and gentle wit, Cutts’s writings advocate and palpably savor the pleasure of domestic attentions and immediate amusements:
calyx of tobacco
a small tarpaulin
of rubber slung
between a pocket adana
This volume is a celebration of daily increment and incident, of friendships and particulars. Included are collaborations with Erica Van Horn and works for electronic formats. This is from an edition of 1000 copies in wrappers, typeset by Colin Sackett. As new.
