We've received the following from Gretchen Henderson, with whom we had a lovely conversation at AWP about our Brian Dettmer cover for Issue 46. She is looking for help with an unusual book project of her own:
Invitation: DEFORM THIS BOOK!
Artists and writers of all bents are invited to participate in the material deformation of the Galerie de Difformité (synopsis here, forthcoming from &NOW Books, with distribution by Northwestern UP). Deformations received by JUNE 1, 2010 will be considered for inclusion in the published book; all submissions received thereafter will be included in the online gallery. Directions to participate can be found here, and the book's deformation can be followed by joining its Facebook page. The Galeriede Difformité will deform in stages; subsequent invitations will be included in the published book. Submissions and questions should be directed to the Undertaker: email@example.com. Thank you, and please spread the word!
