AM ANFANG WAR DAS WORT AM. (IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD IN.)
Probably the most original example of Concrete Poetry: Timm Ulrichs came up with this rigorous sentence 1962, published it for the first time in 1971 as a graphic edition in square format in an edition of 25. In Luther Year, the self-perpetuating epigram appears screen printed on a panel of acrylic glass. Concrete Poetry, founded in 1954, is a genre that combines literature and typography. There are language drawings, word images, image poems, often written on typewriters, composed and communicated simultaneously. (Long version under INFO)
