  • WEAVING PATTERNS FOR POETRY by Egidija Čiricaitė

    No. 18 of the TYPEWRITTEN series: WEAVING PATTERNS FOR POETRY by Egidija Čiricaitė.


    "Inspired by Lithuanian textile patterns, my visual poems are typewritten into the twilight space between weaving, writing and speaking. Traditionally, weaving used to happen during long winter evenings; it was accompanied by singing and storytelling — thus tying together the craft of textiles and the craft of narration. WEAVING PATTERNS FOR POETRY explores traditional Lithuanian bedspread patterns, exploiting (often) bilingual shifts between words and concepts, composing poetry as a score between the visual and the verbal, the verbal and the aural, the aural and the auratic, the auratic and the material. " (Egidija Čiricaitė)


    This book contains 6 typewritten visual poems and 6 printer's summeries.


    Printed on an old Gestetner 320 mimeograph. Hand-bound edition of 60 copies, 62 pages, 28x21cm landscape size, August 2023.
