“The Idea: Cut the bindings off of books found at a used book store. Find poems in the pages by the process of obliteration. Put pages in the mail and send them all around the world. Lather, rinse, repeat.”

Bennett, David-Baptiste Chirot, Holly Crawford, Fran Hill, Jennifer Hill-Kaucher, Geof Huth, Adeena Karasick, Helen Kaucher, Donna Kuhn, Jim Leftwich, Mike Magazinnik, Tim Martin, Kristen McQuillin, Sheila E.
