Ed Baker: Stone Girl E-pic

Stone Girl E-pic

Five books and introduction in one volume

Nottingham, England (2011)

525 pages

“ is work that manages to retain all the elements and yet make contemporary Vispo look very empty, leaving the reader to look for the essentials of a more tradition-based visual poetry: a minimalism that matters and the most purely ‘concrete’ art that ever illustrated text. Writing that cuts to the bone, iconoclastic and original, and a ‘Stone Girl’ art sprung out of the lines themselves. Writing and art on Baker’s terms.”Conrad DiDiodato

Well, then, don’t forget to sign one congratulating yourself on this e-pic output. And someday, as your fame advances at a g-mail’s pace, you’ll be able to say, “I knew him when.”
