Art, memoir, and poetry in a visual presentation of King's work.From the Publisher:
Basil King was doing art for books and magazines long before his wife Martha began writing seriously. His approach to this task was described by her in the King collaboration Seventeen Walking Sticks (London: Stop Press, 1997). To accompany was his deliberate choice of words, for he never approached this kind of work as if he were to illustrate what was written. He wouldn't begin until he felt he had internalized the text-almost like an actor preparing for a role, which partly explains why the work he did for, say, Paul Blackburn's Piere Vidal translations was so different from the drawings he did for Allen Ginsberg's reminiscences of Kerouac.
Basil King's graphic art appears most recently in Sequentia by Theodore Enslin (London: Stop Press, 1999) and in Nine by Theodore Enslin (New York: Spuyten Duyvil, forthcoming Fall 2000). Increasingly his graphic art accompanies his own texts in books including Miniatures and Devotions (London: Stop Press, 1998), the forthcoming Warp Spasm (New York: Spuyten Duyvil, Fall 2000) and in exhibition/performances of his metawork, Mirage.
