The Word by Roberto Marra
Poems and art — concrete poetry — designed, illustrated and written by Roberto Marra (aka Robert Marra).
A deep dive into the shape, meanings, un-meanings, non-meanings, games, and contours of THE WORD. This material later becomes a set piece in Quattro Books’ The Emu Dialogues (2015).
