multi-modal literature

As you may know, Barrie has made very few books all of his own. However the ones he does make have interesting lives.

The Ghost in the Fog is now, officially, clever. True. Dr. Alison Gibbons has included it in The Routledge Companion to Experimental Literature.

He’s the first to admit, it’s hardly a starring role, but there it is. Four lines up from the chapter break. Lavish it says. Lavish… Oh, wait, no. That’s Marian Bantjes.

Apparently it makes an appearance in this book too…

…but we’ve not seen it yet, so we don’t know what it says – and as we’re on the subject it also makes a (very brief) appearance in this exhibition catalogue too…

‘The World as Text documents the exhibition and reading room designed for the Center for Book and Paper Arts under the direction of Chicago-based artist, designer and builder John Preus.  Featuring nearly 100 contemporary artists’ books, zines and exhibition catalogs, the reading room was conceptualized as a hybrid social space and fabricated entirely with reclaimed furniture.  The full color catalog features an essay by artist and critic Dan Wang, project statement by John Preus, a complete index of books and works in the exhibition.’

The catalogue is available as a free download from Lulu.
