From the unstoppable vispo force that is German-based poet Petra Schulze-Wollgast comes the beautiful ON LINEatureS, a chapbook of beautiful palimpsestic visual poetry that thinks about the paper as not just a vehicle, but a central part of the work. These pieces were created using Letraset letters applied directly onto some pages of “lineaturen – a notebook,” and uses the unique lines of the notebook as parts of the poems themselves. The poems present the fragility of the media as a tool, with some letters breaking at the notebook’s existing lines, and others refusing the ordered lineation. The result is a series of beautiful, chaotic, and intricate poems that invite reviewing and re-reading.
This chapbook is printed in a limited edition, hand-stitched by the Gap Riot editors with loving care. Typeset and cover poem by Kate Siklosi.
