Dona Mayoora, Language Lines & Poetry out now from Timglaset



"Language Lines & Poetry is an epic poem of
control and release." —Amanda Earl


"This is an irresistible vispo grimoire for the curious eyes."Gary Barwin


"You will find yourself face to face with one of the most inventive

visual poets today showing you exactly how gesture, stroke, and rule

become language, become speech, become poetry." —Gregory Betts 
 
 

Language Lines & Poetry is Dona Mayoora's long awaited
 
follow up to Listening to Red. In this book Mayoora further explores the 
 
geometry of language, how lines and shapes can be juxtaposed to form or escape 

meaning. Her poetic mind is evident in every one of these works, many 

reminiscent of constructivist drawings, but sprung from the same source 

as her asemic poetry. Timglaset is proud to once again be trusted to 

publish Dona Mayoora's outstanding visual work.

Sentiments by Ragnhild Christiansen is available now from Non Plus Ultra




"In Sentiments the reader encounters powerful bodies of asemic scripture, that exist in a breath and dance of linear lively resuscitation, and dark gestural fascination. In this book one encounters Ragnhild Christiansen’s living hand that tears open raw, with brush and ink, the veil of a glorious creative mind. We are gifted shards of a calligraphic ecosystem dwelling in the mouth of a tiger hang gliding off cliffs of scribal dreaming. In this vision before us are lain deep charcoal tracks on the snowy white page. We are left hunting the action of a crow that has already taken flight after laying down its black bitumen. Natural deep expression rises again to acknowledge scraps of linguistic survival torn open on the pages of an absolutely great book."

—Michael Jacobson, author of Works & Interviews
