Shana Moulton’s collection of found and altered images, The Blazing Fireplace of Guardianship, is the Winter 2012 edition of the Content series (which Blake wrote about here). This is a tender and enigmatic assemblage almost entirely devoid of words, which reads like a challenging and hysterical existential essay, an empathic exploration of modern spiritualism, a cynical contextual analysis of the marketing of the new age, a personal memoir, a mockery of a certain trend towards neo-mysticism in modern art or a map through “the decadent maze of spiritual liberation.”

This Saturday at 10am EASTERN we’re going to try a Re-Do of the Mairéad Byrne Live Giants Reading. Drink coffee. Present at the reading, all in the same Rhode Island house (so no speakerphone), will be Mairéad, Stephanie Barber (cover designer) and me (publisher). We’ll read from the book and discuss our roles as author, designer, publisher. RSVP on the Facebook event thing. And the new New Pages is out with a review of Mairéad’s book by Gina Myers.
