On July 20, Shilpa Garg did a Spine Poetry on her blog and I was fascinated by how interesting titles of a book can be arranged to form a sentence. An excerpt from her post to let you know what Spine Poetry is about.
The concept of book spine poetry appeared in 1993 with Nina Katchadourian’s Sorted Books project. Katchadourian began collecting interesting titles and arranging them in clusters so the spines could be read like a sentence(s) or poem.
Katchadourian’s Sorted Book Project manages to become more than an experiment in medium. Her playful photographed poems are sometimes cleverly arranged jokes or amusing images, but at other times, they are short and stunning thoughts on the nature of art and artists. You can see all the series at her website.
Here’s a mental note I made for myself using the spine of the books:
There is a winner in you!
You can make it by highlighting your Survival Tactics.
You Can Win. Have faith.
But First Things First.
