Constructed Book

My copy, or rather my box, of Filter Literary Journal, Volume 3 has arrived at my mother's house in the States. She emailed me to say this amazing box of art and poetry had arrived. I can't wait for her to forward it to me in Japan.

In the meantime, I am content to read the review by Greg Bem at Hugo House in Seattle. From its descriptions, I get an idea of what an art object this journal truly is. Bem calls it "an important regional collection of artwork, literary and visual, that is filled, as a book should be, with anecdotal evidence of care and precision." Have a peek at his article, and maybe you, like me, will become impatient to get a peek at the real thing.
