ch4 16 FLAT Reading Remove copyNo Press is proud to announce the publication of Kristen Mueller’s “Partially Removing the Remove of Literature”

 

Produced in a limited edition of 50 hand-bound copies.

 

Partially Removing the Remove of Literature is a reading of Nick Thurston’s book Reading the Remove of Literature, which is itself a reading of Maurice Blanchot’s book L’Espace littéraire (The Space of Literature). In Thurston’s appropriation, he has assiduously erased every page of Blanchot’s seminal work, while preserving his own marginalia, through a processual transposition of hand-writing into formal typography. In Mueller’s reading of Thurston, she has partially erased every page of his book, leaving only Thurston’s (extra-textual(?)) markings—the underlinings and arrows, parentheses and exclamation marks—intact. By layering these remains, chapter for chapter, she presents portraits of Thurston’s reading of Blanchot, collapsed and condensed, proffering the gift of theft.

 

Kristen Mueller is the author of Language to Cover a Page (Motto Books, 2014). A longer version of Partially Removing the Remove of Literature will be published by her small press, & So, in 2014. 

 

“Partially Removing the Remove of Literature” is now available for $5ea.

from False Friends:

hajnoczky(Q)

it may seem adequate,

like a sword piercing a shield

in some chivalric tale,

but dust off any old book

and when you look inside

all you’ll find is questions.

is it a treasure map?

did it ride in from france?

is it a spear that slipped

through the ribs of your language,

thousands of years ago,

or is it a thorn in your heel

that you only just noticed?

trade your old tomes

for other volumes

and hunch over the pages

like a medieval monk,

search for its provenance

like a modern scholar.

or trade your leather bound books

for paperbacks

and stop asking questions.
