About This Item

Portland, OR: Fredrik Averin, 2014. First printing. Square broadside, 20 x 20 inches, printed silkscreen in two colors on Mohawk Via 80 lb. cover stock, in an edition of forty-two copies. Bilingual English/Swedish text; typography and translation by the publisher. New.

A poem interpreted through the interplay of language, space, and color: the English text is printed in sky blue, the Swedish in warm red, and the three words in the poem that are, in fact, pronounced exactly alike in both languages are overprinted in the two base colors. An ingenious, gorgeous, and visually arresting rendering.

About Passages Bookshop

Passages Bookshop stocks fine, rare, and unusual books and graphic art, with a concentration on modern and contemporary literature and art (particularly poetry and the avant-garde), artist's books, fine printing, and the book arts. The successor to New York City's Bridge Bookshop (late 1980s), Passages opened in Albuquerque in 1994 and relocated to Portland, Oregon, in 1997. In November of 2015 we moved to a new retail shop and gallery centrally located in Portland's east side, two blocks north of the convention center, where we are typically open Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 pm, as well as by appointment or chance.
