PAP Family Portrait: There Are Now 7 Titles From Post-Asemic Press! Jefferson Hansen's book '100 Hybrids' will be available by August!

The PAP family of titles

The proof copy of 100 Hybrids is in! Jefferson has worked long and hard on these poems mixed with handwritten asemic writing and I am very excited to release the book on Post-Asemic Press. In 100 Hybrids, words and asemic writing unite to tell a story of balance between the human hand and modern technology. Asemic writing depends on the internet for asemic cultural diffusion of calligraphic scribal artifacts, and Jefferson's work is a futuristic look into the potentiality of handwriting. It captures the asemic/verbal poetry of the techno-evolutionary now more than any other book I have read, and holds its place well in the online/offline tension of modern society by way of Jefferson's dry rolling humor. Some of the poems in this book break free with asemic calligraphic elation, and others are closed in on by the asemic author's hunt for meaning in a surveillance society. All in all it's a strong work of mental awareness for the current poetic condition.

100 Hybrids will be available from Amazon by August of 2018, and will sell for $12.00. This book will appeal to both lovers of poetry and the current wave of interest in asemic writing.  100 Hybrids is book #007 from Post-Asemic Press.

I was Interviewed by Brainard Carey for Praxis Museum Of Nonvisible Art/Yale University Radio

Brainard did a great job with the questions, but my answers need some practice and work, and are proof that I am not a performance poet! I guess there is a first for everything. Here's the link to listen to the interview: http://museumofnonvisibleart.com/interviews/michael-jacobson/
