Unique Artist Book & Aleatory Poem


December 2, 2015 by petrujviljoen

Imaginary Garden with Real Toads invites poetry contributions. I used aleatory poetry, lines taken from a Iris Murdoch novel that fell apart as I was reading it. I chose sentences describing the landscape and arranged it so to form a poem.

    Darn Moon, blotting out that vision before I could see it. It sounded fast moving,
    Poor Jay, caught in the fury.
    When I compose and post a ‘spine poem, made of a stack of books, I type the words below the picture for my readers ease. I couldn’t read yours so I did, with my iPad, a screen snap pic and then stretched the picture out for me to have a large print read.
    Nice composure.
    Thank you for visiting and for your nice comment. Cheers,

  3. The image is beautiful and the words are a little hard to read, but I got them.. it’s amazing what an element of randomness can give.. I like the how the brain is wired to try to find those little connection..

    That looks really beautiful but my old eyes can’t read the type 😦

  6. This is visually beautiful, but the type is too small for me to read it. So sorry.

  7. This is absolutely stunning.
