A new edition of 'Works and Interviews' by Michael Jacobson is available now at Amazon! Post-Asemic Press #001

A new edition of my book Works and Interviews is available now at Amazon!

Here is the book description:

"Works & Interviews collects Michael Jacobson's dynamic asemic writing and his thoughts on the current asemic movement in art and literature. Included in the book are his asemic "stories" The Giant's Fence, Action Figures, A Headhunter's Tale, PΩz, THAT: A Plan(et), and The Paranoia Machine. The text also contains 9 interviews he has given to various online journals over the years such as at Full of Crow, SCRIPTjr.nl, Samplekannon, Asymptote Journal, Slova, Twenty-Four Hours, David Allen Binder, 4 Questions with Marco Giovenale, and also includes a previously unpublished interview with Jacobson by poet and journalist Volodymyr Bilyk. Works & Interviews documents the evolution of an early 21st century artist, writer, and publisher who uses science fiction calligraphic scripts to explore the locus of manuscript art in relation to technology and internet culture. Since 2008 Michael Jacobson has curated the influential blog/gallery The New Post-Literate: A Gallery Of Asemic Writing, and in 2017 he was a guest curator of the Minnesota Center for Book Arts exhibit Asemic Writing: Offline & In The Gallery, which was the first large-scale group exhibit of asemic writing in the United States. In 2013 he co-edited with Tim Gaze An Anthology Of Asemic Handwriting, which collected over one hundred asemic scribes from around the world and is the most definitive collection of asemic literature published so far. In 2017 he founded Post-Asemic Press to publish asemic writing, experimental literature, post-graffiti, abstract comics, visual poetry, Lettrisme, abstract calligraphy, etc. He currently lives in Minneapolis, is a father, an avid cyclist, and posts most of his asemics, art, and gif animation pohmz to his online ELLO studio: @asemicwriter."

Time On The Carousel by Jeff Crouch


grinder the circle the sweeper of being when once the brass the seeking the scene turning to wash a chariot wheel spinning Neptune submarine and clock where the motion reveals the melt of popsicle the sugary seal of something ancient seeking a sign is painted fresh blue while the music has meaning creaking in fog grinder the ride the keeper of being when once the bright the making a scene yearning to dash a chariot keel spinning his tune Lili Marleen and stop where the rotor unveils the lilt of the cycle the rubbery vein whose bleeding ancient seeking a sign is painted stark white while the music ascends to sunlight

Post-Asemic Press News and new cover art for Works & Interviews by Michael Jacobson


Createspace is closing so I spent the day moving all Post-Asemic Press titles to Kindle Direct Publishing and getting them set up there. KDP is still run by Amazon but the new publishing page is more streamlined and is a cleaner but slightly slower experience. Since it is a new site for the press, I went ahead and made new cover art for my book Works & Interviews.

If you are in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA on September 22nd, from 6 to 7 pm, stop by Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Avenue South, in Minneapolis. Jefferson Hansen will be having a book release reading for 100 Hybrids. His book plus all other PAP titles will be available for sale. So stop by and say hello and enjoy poetry from Jeff and other great Minnesota poets. Here is the Facebook event page.

Marilyn R. Rosenberg's book of asemic abstract calligraphy FALSE FICTION FRACTURED FACT ALTERED is still set to come out in early October 2018. We are just waiting on one more blurb.

I am also excited to announce that the great calligrapher, artist, and collage poet Cecil Touchon is going to be doing a book with PAP this late November 2018. The title of the book is still undecided, but we have plenty of material to make a great new book!

In other PAP news, the other day I met with visual poet and architect  Scott Helmes. We are going to do a book together sometime early next year. The book is tentatively titled "Cut-Up Magazine Asemics" until we find a better name. Look for Scott's book to be released in Spring of 2019.

Also in 2019, look for new PAP books by Australia's asemic writing maestro Tim Gaze, and a book of asemic tattoo magick stories by Brazilian artist Renan Rodrigues. PAP is likewise going to be releasing a book of asemic glitch poems by the Italian poet Marco Giovenale. A book by Tom Cassidy aka Musicmaster is also in the works. Volodymyr Bilyk's title Codex Abyssus will also be expanded next year with 30+ pages of new material.

In 2020 PAP will be open for submissions again.
