The Last Vispo
With its global scope of 148 contributors from 23 countries, The Last Vispo Anthology has three purposes: to document the recent upsurge in visual poetry, to make visual poetry available to a wider audience, and to be used as a pedagogical tool in poetry and art curriculum at the secondary and post-secondary level - and to extend the dialectic between art and literature that began with the concrete poetry movement fifty years ago.
For more about the project, visit the website: www.thelastvispo.com, which also includes the list of contributors and their bios online at Vispo / Bios, and an interesting list of Visual Poetry Blogs/Websites
There also is a 35-page preview online underneath the order info and the quotes, the preview includes the introduction of the editors Crag Hill and Nico Vassilakis: The Last Vispo / preview.
