if p then q is very pleased to announce our 16th publication Encyclops. by seekers of lice. A link for sampling and purchase are below.
Published October 2014
About the book
A version of Encyclops. was handwritten on 142 paper bags with photographs and drawings. This work was exhibited at news of the world gallery, Deptford, London, November-December 2013. In this print version published by if p then q writing (encyclopedic bugs) is presented alphabetically. There is a sense of the style of Gertrude Stein of Tender Buttons & eroticism, perhaps a theme yet also a method used to intuit. Images and ideas are immediately in view then drift out again, just as fast, leaving the reader to return to the poem without knowing whether the experience is being repeated. It’s good good stuff.
