Another highlight

...of the Festival of Words was the launch of Predicting the Next Big Advertising Breakthrough Using a Potentially Dangerous Method by Daniel Scott Tysdal. The book was designed by Duncan Campbell. I mention this because the book is something to behold. Be sure to check out a copy so you can see what I mean. I could write a 1000 words and still fail to adequately describe the way its content and design meet. It's exciting to look at and to read. I just finished reading "Metro" which the notes in the back tell me is a trailerization of Pound's "In a Station of the Metro." This marks my first known encounter with a trailerization. I must say it's fantastic.

my own copy of that book just arrived today, and i'm really excited to dive in. i am intrigued by the unique layout, size, and title of this book, and look forward to cool things within.

Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all! Too bad I had conflicting events. perhaps I'll be able to join you next year.

Tracy...I pass this along here (hope you don't mind, Brenda). Thank you for the wonderful festival journal! I was curious about Richard B Wright reading from Adultery for the last time. He's decided that's enough, has he?

Indeed, there are plenty of cool things in there, Kimmy.

Anita, I don't mind at all. Tracy's festival journal is wonderful. It's the heart of my next post.

Thanks B and Anita.

Anita--what we surmised is that Wright must be fully immersed in a new book, and wants to focus entirely on that project.
