Last week the mailman brought — to my greatest delight — the latest Spanner Editions production: Proposals 1-35 by Allen Fisher. This is a gorgeously produced full color sequence of “poem-image-commentary” ensembles. Not sure what is the best way to acquire this little marvel, but you can always write to Spanner editions at 14 Hopton Road, Hereford HR1 1BE, U.K.
— Addendum: You can now buy the book online using Paypal — click here. —
Below, a video of AF reading from this sequence of poems. You can see a few more in the online magazine Spine. Hopefully AF will read from the sequence on Saturday at Bowery Poetry Club (see yesterday’s post for details).

2 opinions on “Allen Fisher’s PROPOSALS”
Saw Fisher at Miami (Ohio) last night–a great performance of some of the Proposals. Unfortunately I missed the lecture that preceded it.
I thought you might like to know that Glenn Storhaug of Five Seasons Press (also based in Hereford, UK) has produced a beautiful “broadsheet” edition of Proposals 6.
Check out the Five Seasons Press website for details.
