36pp xerox, with 8 tipped-in samples of corporate envelope interiors in cut window-mounts, with envelope interior endpapers.105 x 150mm, sewn and casebound with cover image embossed inlay. 150 numbered copies.

Peter Foolen, the Dutch editor, sent the envelope interiors for this collection, which have a plain-ness and consistent simplicity. They employ reduced repetition, assmmetry, and even at times a formal randomness approaching camouflage. They bring the nineteenth century origin of the printed envelope interior as a means of hiding the contents into our time, and are mostly of banks, water and road-rescue companies, and other governmental institutions.

128pp.offset.230 x140mm sewn paperback with flaps.ISBN 978-0-9568559-7-8. To some extent the book fulfills the near-decadal grouping of the new poems, in so far as they can be reduced to a common format and rendered in anthological form.At the same time this is a book for the tall narrow format of uniformbooks with their incidental tranlucence of paper allowing for an accumulative layering, and the sense that these fragments of poems are suspended throughout the volume of the book.

DIRT Les Coleman 2009

96pp 4-colour offset 215 x 155

Dirt & Other Works documents the objects, sculptures and installations, many of a temporal nature made by Les Coleman over a period of forty years. His use of transient materials leads to an instability and fragility, and may remind us of our own precariousness. Much of the work is of course now lost. Some of the installations integrate the audience as part of the content of the work. At the same time, ephemeral and inexpensive items of printed matter have always been an effective vehicle for his work. David Briers contributes a critical overview of the work.
