Robin Tomens, Restoration of Time

Robin Tomens, whose Too Much To Bear was the very first book published by Timglaset, returns with Restoration of Time, a six-panel-sequence of focused vispo. An eerily familiar silhouette of a man with a hat on his head moves through the sequence while snippets of theoretical texts on language, labour and society cover his body and enter the panels in splinters and blocks.

Robin Tomens is an artist, blogger, collagist and visual poet. He works with both digital and analog media. His book on Jazz, Points of Departure, was published by Stride and Timglaset has also published his Prints.

Restoration of Time, 8 pages, size 17 x 24 cm, laser printed in black and white and stapled fanzine-style in an edition of 50 copies. 3 euro + postage.

derek beaulieu, isostatisk landhöjning

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

isostatisk landhöjning is a visual poem of staggering proportions. This swirling, dynamic composition made of Letraset debris measures 80 x 20 cm (31,5″ x 7,9″).

In derek beaulieu’s own words:

isostatisk landhöjning is the Swedish phrase for the post-glacial scraping and land-forming which results in the geography of northern countries (Canada and Sweden for example); this scraping results in inlets, small lakes and crenelated coastlines. This piece metaphorically scrapes the surface of writing, leaving behind the islands and coastlines of littered text; deposits left behind as meaning recedes.

Timglaset press is proud and pleased to publish isostatisk landhöjning by derek beaulieu as a leporello folded book in a handfolded, rubber stamped envelope. The poem itself has been screenprinted on Scandia 2000 170g paper by master screenprinter Michael Lönnström at (3)screen, Malmö.

C. R. E. Wells, to let lack


Timglaset proudly presents a new 8-page leaflet by C. R. E. Wells:

This short sequence resulted from one of my many attempts to create digital work originating from physical mixed-media pieces. The phrase “to let lack” appeared in the original collage, and it resonated with my experiments in brightness/contrast, blurring, erasure, and other “subtractive” techniques.

C. R. E. Wells lives in central Ohio, USA with his wife and animals. His work has appeared online and in print in several publications. His visual works have been exhibited locally and internationally. He shares poetry, visual poetry and mail art regularly on his blog. In 2017 Luna Bisonte Prods published Twofold Silences, a chapbook of procedural/visual work.

to let lack was manufactured in an edition of 49 copies, of which 25 are for sale. Printed in full colour, a5 format, on 120 g ivory paper, handbound with brown, black or natural colour thread. 8 pages.
