About this Item

Seattle: Arundel Books. 2012. F First Edition. S Broadside. New. "Oi(sea)u" is a limited edition poetry publication with an unusual structure which, when expanded, takes the shape of a bird in flight, a conscious evocation of the essence of the poem by Northwest author Geoff Wallace. A NOTE ON THE STRUCTURE: Technically a book, in fact a tensile accordion structure, folding to form an 8-page work (of which 5 pages are printed). The sheet is lightly scored, not folded, and retains sufficient inherent tension, that when released from its ties, it expands to take the shape of a bird in flight, with the deckle edge representing trailing edge feathers. A NOTE ON THE PRINTING: Designed by Annie Brule and Phil Bevis, each copy of this limited edition of 240 numbered copies were printed letterpress by hand on a vintage Arches heavyweight paper on an ancient Chandler & Price press. Each copy is hand numbered and signed by the author. A NOTE ON THE AUTHOR AND POEM: The first separately published work of Northwest author Geoff Wallace (Washington-native, now Portland based), "Oi(sea)u" is a short poem that plays off the makeup of the French word for 'bird': "en anglais, en français you wear a cape somewhere in between, you are a bird transformed into the sea" Signed: I Signed by Author.
