Asemic Samples – An Encyclopedia of Everything

Like most people, when I was first introduced to the concept of Asemic Writing it came as quite a shock that there was TITLE and a genre and a community of people who practiced this writing form.

I received – I can only call them snippets of Asemic writing over quite a long period. Instead of them disappearing into storage, I have gathered them into a book.

These samples entrench my feeling of the elasticity of the term ‘asemic’. I have stitched asemics (Marie Wintzer (Japan), asemics on fallen wall plaster (Heather Miller – South Africa), painted asemics (Sue Bowen – USA) and printed asemics (Samual Montalvetti – Argentina) to name but a few.
