textual vishyuns

We are pleased to announce that textual vishyuns, carl peters’ book about the poetry and art of bill bissett, is now available!

Drawing primarily from statements and manifestos of aesthetic ­theory by practitioners of the major modernist movements of impressionism, cubism, fauvism, surrealism and abstract expressionism in the visual arts; the poetics of Gertrude Stein, William Burroughs, Charles Olson and bpNichol; and the experimental films of Andy Warhol, Stan Brakhage, David Lynch and David Cronenberg, here, finally, is a book that locates bissett’s textual and visual artistic praxis within the larger context of the history, theory and practice of art.
