The Vispo Bible: Leviticus is completed

Leviticus 27
I have just completed the third book of the Old Testament for my project, the Vispo Bible. I worked on it from November, 2016 to March, 2017. It contained 27 chapters. A few pieces will appear in an anthology made by Renegade Press, run by andrew topel.

I will continue to alternate between the Old and New Testaments.

Pieces from the Vispo Bible appear in h&, Illiterature (Puddles of Sky Press), Our Teeth, Dreamland, Brave New Word, Ustanga, as a leaflet published by No Press, & are forthcoming in untethered magazine. A few pieces were also displayed as part of a University of Ottawa exhibit and talk about contemporary visual poetry.

I've also posted a few pieces on this blog, & on Tumblr. The entire Vispo Bible's Book of Genesis translation is on YouTube:

The Vispo Bible on Display at U of O

photo by Claire Farley
as part of a graduate course given by Professor Robert Stacey. PhD student, publisher, poet and dear friend, Claire Farley interviewed me for the presentation and lovingly displayed my work as part of an exhibit on visual and concrete poetry at the university.

the conversation was fascinating and fun. i'm glad to see that students are being introduced to visual/concrete poetry. when i first heard of such, i was amazed. the possibilities are endless.

thanks to Claire for this great photo, for the wonderful display and for choosing my work as her subject.

i'm now working on the Book of  Leviticus, the third book in the Old Testament. I've finished Genesis, Exodus in the Old Testament, Revelation and Jude in the New. onward!
