This is the first issue of a series of alphabetic/letter inspired chap­books focus­ing on min­i­mal­ism and typog­ra­phy. I would like to think of it as a col­lage poem. My exper­i­men­ta­tion with min­i­mal­ism has led to some inter­est­ing results. I enjoy the pace of cre­at­ing a work like this — it took no longer than 48 hours — and the spon­tane­ity work­ing with online tools grants me. This par­tic­u­lar series will be cre­at­ed by using Can­va, an online pub­lish­ing and design tool. The lim­i­ta­tions (in rela­tion to fonts, design and lay­out etc.) allow for a flu­id and spon­ta­neous exper­i­men­ta­tion. In the case of the­se chap­books, I have decid­ed to use Google Fonts and keep it as min­i­mal as pos­si­ble. This should allow a reader’s focus to be placed on the whole page, as a piece of art, and at the same time main­tain the read­abil­i­ty of the poems, unless pur­pose­ful­ly obfus­cat­ed.
