This book features important visual works by one of the U.S.'s best known and respected avant-garde writers.

"Kostelanetz is probably the world's most experimental writer, or at least he represents the farthest extreme of the formalist approach within the broader field of experimental writing....His output in visual poetry, a medium between poetry and painting which differs from most concrete poetry by being nonlinear and non-syntactic, is among his most significant work" - A Reader's Guide to Twentieth-Century Writers
