Consonant Clusters

Check out a new vispo ezine by Jukka-Pekka Kervinen called Consonant Clusters. In this ezine he publishes some of his own work (as in the example below) as well as other visual poets from around the world. It's a great blog.


Toon Tune by Gustave Morin

This is part of a series of post on Visual Poetry that Geof Huth did for the Poetry Foundation.  Here's an excerpt about Gustave Morin's fun example of VisPo:

Gustave Morin's primary form is the collage poem. His "toon tune" is a
remarkable piece of craftsmanship. Its sixty-three individual fragments
of text are cut into the shapes of jigsaw puzzle pieces and are fit
perfectly together in a rectangular grid. The "words" of the poem
consist almost entirely of the extravagant visualizations of
onomatopoeia from comic books, producing a visual symphony of crashes
and cries.—Geof Huth
