The proof copy of The Cecil Touchon Asemic Reader just arrived from the printer today! Post-Asemic Press #009

The proof copy of The Cecil Touchon Asemic Reader just arrived from the printer today! Expect the book to come out in August 2019. We are just waiting on a few more blurbs and then everything will be set to go.  The Cecil Touchon Asemic Reader collects asemic calligraphy and collages by Touchon going back all the way to the 1970s. The price for the book will be $25.00 because the book is in full color. Color printing costs more but the effect is well worth it. The book also has a great introduction penned by poet and physicist Federico Federici.
 
Here is a blurb about The Cecil Touchon Asemic Reader written by Peter Schwenger

"A torrent of creative dynamism, The Cecil Touchon Asemic Reader comes at you in three waves: asemic overwriting of print, usually on antique pages; the elegant typographic collages for which Touchon is best known; and layered linear screens that seem to exist in a receding space. Through these variations, the book challenges us to rethink in depth our conceptions of surface, a thinking accompanied by wordless pleasure."

Peter Schwenger, author of Asemic: The Art Of Writing
