Albion – Stephen Emmerson

The latest publication from Like This Press is Stephen Emmerson’s book-in-a-box, Albion.

Albion was generated at Inland Studios over 2 days in August during an installation organised by Stephen. Details of the original exhibition are available here: http://www.inlandstudios.co.uk/home/index.php?/projects/abion/

This installation was centred around the work of William Blake.

An 8 foot by 8 foot pentagram was placed on the floor with a typewriter at each of the 5 points. There were 5 visual poems derived from Blake’s writing, and a 30 minute soundtrack that was played on a loop. Participants were asked to channel Blake and let him write through them, but the event was also a way for the audiovisual landscape to be translated into text.

Each box contains:

1 x introduction in an envelope

4 x hand-ripped poster poems

6 x photos

1 x 6 track CD

44 x hand-torn loose leafed transcriptions

Boxes can be purchased for £9 direct from Like This Press: http://www.likethispress.co.uk/publications/stephenemmerson
