Keyboards: 14 poems for Tom Jenks by Catherine Vidler

12.00

A series of visual/textual poetry by prolific Australian poet Catherine Vidler. Keyboards: 14 poems for Tom Jenks is composed of glitching textual artifacts, an array of digital ephemera unraveling across the page like code through a corrupted processor. As the series go on, each poem invading and overwriting the last, it devolves into rich fields of pixelated letter forms. Keyboards has been produced in a limited edition of 50 chapbooks, hand-bound in blank prototyping circuit boards and aluminum tape, then sealed in translucent anti-static bags (normally used to ship computer hardware).

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?
