About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Sweethearts by Williams, Emmett.

Description:

Limited edition of 500 numbered copies. Publisher's white paper wrappers, lettered in black. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, a hint of faint soiling to the panels, else fine. Overall, a bright and pleasing copy. Sweethearts is an artist's book of concrete poetry by Fluxus artist Emmett Williams. Fluxus was a loosely organized group of artists who, employing the spirit of the preceding Dada movement, rejected traditional and professional forms of art in the 1960s and 1970s. A revolutionary movement with its foundations in Germany, Fluxus combined different forms of art and the avant-garde and was generally participatory in nature. Williams, a poet and graphic artist who was a founding member of the Fluxus and concrete poetry movements, typically blends art and poetry in his works, which range from visual poetry to typographical fine prints. In Sweethearts, Williams challenged himself to write poetry using only words made up of the letters found in "sweetheart" with the mandates that no poem be "more than 11 letters wide or 11 letters deep." In addition to the concrete poetry, Williams includes "kinetic metaphors" which can be animated by flipping the pages to yield a "primitive cinematic effect." In his introductory "instructions for use," Williams explains that the "fusion" between word poems and kinetic metaphors is "best achieved by beginning the book where in the west books traditionally end.".
