Bern Porter -- Found Poems
Sibyl, Sibila's English language portal, has just published Joel Lipman's illuminating introduction to Bern Porter's Found Poems, which is just out from Nightboat.
In conjunction with the publication of the book and Sibyl's publication of the introduction, Lipman has made available a set of Porter images, which I include here. Photos by Lipman and Tom Barden, taken 1998-99.
