Contemporary Meat by Sacha Archer

10.00

An erasure poem redacting the proper nouns from a litany of author bios. By removing the proper nouns, Archer reveals how name dropping has become the cultural currency of the literary community; we are only recognizable by virtue of those who recognize us. To emphasize the depersonalized content of the work, Contemporary Meat comes in a stack of 3.5" x 3.5" cut sheets tied up in butcher twine, then packaged in styrofoam and plastic wrap, much like a filet mignon. A limited edition of 40 chapbooks/art books featuring this unusual presentation and binding have been produced.

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?
