Kaysays: Essays and Interviews by Kay Rosen
One copy available, which has surface damage to the front cover.
Kay Rosen’s collected texts offer a sustained and complex elucidation of her language-based paintings, collages, and site-specific works. At the same time, Rosen manages to construct compelling narratives in which her practically anthropomorphic letterforms enact scintillating little dramas.
In addition, Rosen has adapted three of her visual language projects to page format specifically for this publication. One of these, Blurred, originally designed as a large-scale corner wall painting, takes particular advantage of the syntax of the printed page spread. The corner gutter of the page contributes the requisite directional change, and a rainbow-roll of blue and red ink produces—physically and visually—exactly, its sense.
