Recents Poems by Scott Helmes is now available from RedFoxPress | C'est Mon Dada #130

Scott Helmes sent me a copy of his new book Recents Poems, published by the cool Redfoxpress out of Ireland. It's a beautiful little book, hand made, and full of asemic script, both collaged and handwritten. The codex captures a wide range of Scott's non-verbal concretes, sonnets, and haiku, though some of the works do contain fragments of lettering. It's a book written in black & white, but works in color are featured on many of the pages, making for a wonderful exhibition of Scott's diverse artistry.
I have the good fortune of living in Minneapolis near Scott's art studio. And this fall of 2019, I will be publishing a book of his titled Magazine: The Cut-up Asemics, in an endless edition at Post-Asemic Press
