"VWLS" by Christian Bök

2.50

Famous for his poetics of extreme constraint, conceptualist Christian Bök reworks the famous anti-fascist sentiments of Martin Niemöller into a politically-charged lipogram by systematically eliminating more and more vowels from each line of his poem. VWLS is presented as a limited edition of 10" x 4" cardstock leaflets, 60 copies in circulation.

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?
