A print book series in collaboration with LemonMelon was launched in January 2012. Our first title is Uh Duh by Sarah Jacobs, which was launched with a performance reading at X Marks the Bökship on the 25th January at 7pm.
Dr. Simon Morris writes about Uh Duh:
“This poet and artist are a slippery pair. The gaps left by their absent presence are clearly visible on the page as a space for the reader to interact with the text. The particularity of their laughter disturbs me…ha, ha, ha…heh, heh, heh. Like David Bowie’s laughing gnome I can’t quite catch them yet at the same time get left imagining a scary encounter over lunch in which the pair squirt caviar and honey at one another in a Paul McCarthyesque carnival of filth, whilst their transparent words collide in mid-air, smash into one another and leave us quite spent. Writing this tough is a car crash.”
