twelve tapestries

Twelve Tapestries / Elizabeth Lebon, 2014.

”Elizabeth Lebon writes poems, prose, concrete poetry, and produces book objects, as well as optical and audio compositions. Poetry typescripts are an important part of the research carried out by this English artist, who writes on her typewriter every day. Most of the poetry tapestries reproduced in this book are related to the perception of shores and oceans: “sey; of the oea; cocklle; like a cockle shell; courage; aeagull; wea wea my my; aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa; mountain ing sea sea sea; pages tothfh bhblel nsnkek ataghgee olofaf tkt eue sgseeeasa; are; sand embers.” All compositions are published for the first time. The title is made with an original label typewritten by the artist, and all copies are numbered and signed.” — publisher's website.
