Doodle Dandies Poems That Take Shape

by J. Patrick Lewis, images by Lisa Desimini

An inventive collection of concrete poems illustrated with bold and colorful mixed-media collages.

In this collection of concrete poems the words and images work together in harmony. From the lavender endpapers that feature a mix of childlike drawings and letters in different typefaces, and the magic-marker doodles surrounding the various shapes on the CIP page, to the final page, each spread is fresh and inviting. The mixed media art is full of textures and dark, rich colors that invite repeated scrutiny.
