The Beating Book

Workshop guide: Manuel Ramos

Poetry is a world to which you gain access no just by the word but also by the drawing, the color and the movement as well. The Visual Poetry transmutes the word, transcends it through the combination of objects, sounds, colors and forms. The visual poem aspires to be said with a typographic exuberance, to be drawn, and more so, to fight for a place over the objects themselves. It is about coming back to the original sense of poetry because drawing and writing have been close for a long while. A visual poem seeks its own flesh and blood.
