I recently reviewed Mark Laliberte’s brickbrickbrick (Toronto: Bookthug, 2010) at the advent book blog.

The Weal has recently taken an interest in my commissioned window visual poem.

“1115 / 2:47: Pages” the short film Emma Rouleau made of the creation of my visual poem at Pages Books is now online!

The Calgary Herald‘s SWERVE Magazine has taken an interest in my visual poem on the glass of Pages Books. Avenue Magazine is also intrigued!

1115 / 2:47: Pages

Visual Poet: derek beaulieu

Stop-motion Documentation / Video Editing: Emma Rouleau

The untitled work featured in 1115 / 2:47: Pages was commissioned by Pages Books on Kensington for permanent exhibition on their second-story window. This dynamic stop-motion film documents beaulieu’s visual improvisation in art and writing.

Copies are available directly through Pages Books.

Mayne Island’s Perro Verlag Books has just published my new chapbook Quartet for 6 Voices.

Published in an edition of 50 copies, each copy has letterpressed covers and title pages, full-colour gate-fold pages and are available for $9 (+ $2 postage). To order, please contact Jo Cook.

My latest chapbook “8 visual poems” will be available exclusively in Montreal thru Distriboto. Distriboto machines are former cigarette machines which no longer sell cigarettes, but instead, sell art in the form of miniature books, crafts, comics, music, film, animation and more! If you’re in Montreal, seek them out!

The third installment of my “Pulled off my shelves” series (houndishly hosted by lemonhound) is “There are some punctuations that are interesting and some punctuations that are not.”

The second of my “Pulled off my shelves” series (lovingly hosted by lemonhound) is a discussion of bill bissett’s seminal book RUSH: what fuckan theory.

Lemonhound has been kind enough to host my new series of reviews on her blog.

“Pulled from my shelves” will be a sort of “from the vault” series in which i discuss books which are not particularly “new.” I’ve begun with a review of Alison Turnbull’s Spring Snow – A Translation.
