I Received 2 Great New Books Of Asemic Writing Today: 'Echolalia In Script' by Sam Roxas-Chua, & 'The Way I Discovered The Berlin Wall Has Fallen' by Federico Federici.

Today I received 2 books of asemic writing in the mail. Both of these books are great and are wonderful additions to the library of asemic writing I am constructing! Sam's is the more varied of the 2 with everything from asemic calligraphy to images of sculptures where asemic writing is included as an element, while Federico's is computer coded in LaTex: the whole book is a macro-code which is shaped once distilled and printed. Both texts are at the opposite ends of the asemic spectrum as far as how they were written, but they have a similar spirit to them, secret and illegible yet still maintaining their aesthetic allure. I highly recommend these books for deep reading during the winter months (summer for you southern hemisphere people). Like all asemic books, they can be enjoyed and studied for a lifetime or casually perused in an afternoon.

Click the following links to purchase the 2 books at Amazon:

Coming Soon in 2018! Artefacts by O Mayeux | Post Asemic Press #006

Artefacts cover



On Artefacts
In January 2017, O Mayeux wrote a computer program to dismantle all the poetry he has ever written, to tear it apart at its seams, to stitch its syntax into itself. What remains are these Artefacts, a cycle of asemic poetry. The abstract erotic narrative threaded through these poems is a delicate lament for the fragility of semantics, a tale of how we all remain unreadable to each other. 

Author biography
O Mayeux (http://4f4d.xyz/) is an artist and linguist.
