Grid Poems Vol. 1

sold out




Grid Poems Vol. I. is a collection of 45 illustrated poems. Part haiku, part sudoku, each grid poem is a 3 x 3 arrangement of lines written to allow two different intended readings: left-to-right vs. top-to-bottom. This structure allows subtly and drastically different perspectives to emerge from the same text. Reflecting the spirit of this poetry, Soat uses unseen spaces between the grid blocks as a source for raw materials: line widths and particles that coalesce to illustrate a third, purely visual narrative of each poem.
