"Black Square #1" Artist Print/Leaflet/Mini-Leaflet by derek beaulieu

from 1.00

Constructed from layered up Letraset transfers, Black Square #1 is typographic topography, an exploration of texture and shade, and the geometry of precision and error. The Blasted Tree has produced three limited editions of this visual poem by derek beaulieu at various sizes, each highlighting particular aspects of the work - 50 leaflets printed at scale show how the square looks to the unassisted eye, 10 numbered and signed artist prints magnify and reveal surprising details, and 100 mini-leaflets reduce the image to its superficial geometry.

In the present age of digital media, the art of publishing and book-binding is quickly being forgotten. The Blasted Tree appreciates the difference between reading a story online and holding a copy in your hands, and we feel the experience of owning a high-quality physical copy should not be lost. Though we make most of our media available online free of charge, physical distribution is how we raise funds to promote our authors and this site. The Blasted Tree is involved at every level of publication, from editing to typesetting, production, and distribution. What better way to support Canadian authors and artists than by purchasing a printed copy of their work?
