[BKARTS] Center for Book Arts Event: Wrapping the Word



THE CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS PRESENTS A DISCUSSION ON
         CONTEMPORARY POETRY AND BOOK DESIGN
      IN COLLABORATION WITH FUTUREPOEM BOOKS

                  The Center for Book Arts presents
Wrapping the Word: How Designers, poets and publishers collaborate
            to reimagine the contemporary poetry book.

This event will be held on Friday, March 7th at 7PM.
CBA Members free, non-members a $5 suggested donation.

Futurepoem Books is a new Brooklyn-based publishing collective that
publishes emerging poetic talent and prides itself on a commitment to fine
press book design. The event features Dan Machlin, Founder and Publisher of

Futurepoem, Anthony Monahan, the Designer who created the visual identity
for the press, and two Futurepoem poets - Rachel Levitsky and Garrett
Kalleberg.

Dan, Anthony, Rachel and Garrett will discuss how they collaborated to
produce Under the Sun (March 2003, Futurepoem) and Some Mantic Daemons
(December 2002, Futurepoem) and design issues that arose in response to the

need to find an appropriate visual language to communicate the poetic work,

to balance cost and impact, to meet today's marketing and distribution
requirements, and to develop a consistent visual identity to differentiate
the press.
