A spiral-bound notebook of visual poems, created in response to the word‘chaingrass’ from Bill Manhire’s poem ‘Falseweed’, has just been released in the UK by zimZalla.
zimZalla is a publishing project which makes literary objects. It is administrated by poet and publisher Tom Jenks and operates out of Manchester.
The poems were made by Catherine Vidler and the book designed by Tom Jenks.
The notebook is preceded by two other ‘chaingrass’ collections which Catherine has made and which have been published this year. A large collection of poems and patterns was published by Stale Objects dePress in Sydney in September, and a PDF chapbook of the poems together with an interview with Catherine, was recently featured in the journal Jazz Cigarette in the United States.
