Glyphs of Uncertain Meaning by Tim Gaze is available now worldwide at Amazon!
GOUM is the 14th title released by PAP. It has been an adventure assembling the book and we are proud to announce its launch.
"This is a collection of improvised handwritten glyphs, some of them recognizable and some not. Influences include visual poetry, Asian brush calligraphy, prehistoric rock paintings and marker pen graffiti. Part of a wave of "asemic writing", this book transcends language and nationality to arrive at something truly global. These glyphs encourage you to learn new ways of reading, and ask you to question your understanding of what writing is. Tim Gaze is also known for Asemic Magazine, the sound poetry album Shapes, and the graphic novel 100 Scenes."
Since the late '90s, Tim Gaze has been active as a poet, writer, publisher, and performer. In particular, he has been very involved in the field of asemic writing, publishing Asemic Magazine and setting up the first website, www.asemic.net. His works include the graphic novel 100 Scenes, glitch poetry collection noology and sound poetry album Shapes. Recently, he completed a degree in linguistics, and hosts the radio show Sound Poetry etc. Dance music such as batida by the Principe Discos artists gets him going. The Adelaide Hills of Australia, in the traditional lands of the Peramangk people, is his home.

This piece is based on geometry found in runic alphabets, which have a limited variety of angles. I used 30 degrees and some 45. Runic magic uses overlaid and joined runes to create sigils. The idea was to create random asemic ones that went beyond two dimensions to three. Will this get past the purists? hehe.
