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