handmade book, 70 typewriter poems, hardcover, color print, limited edition: 150 books, hand-numbered and signed by the artist, DIN A6 (4.1 x 5.8 inches)

this book is a collection of my concrete and visual poems of the last years, written with my »adler triumph gabriele 10« typewriter. as the subtitle says, it can also be read as a drama in four acts. 

…after »2 4get her« was sold out quickly last year, i decided to republish the book in a slightly new look. i wrote everything with a different typewriter, added 20 poems and rearranged many of them. as the previous version it is completely handmade, but now some poems are printed in color and it has beautiful hardcover. 

the price is € 19,- ($ 24,-) plus packaging and worldwide shipping.

My brothers and sisters.

My heart has been so renewed with joy by hearing the change in people’s hearts close to me. Its amazing the way God answers prayers in perfect timing. It’s amazing what just one year can do. It’s amazing how powerful God’s influence is. It’s amazing to see my family of brothers and sisters grow. It’s amazing to see God’s love breaking through a person’s wall of rejection. It’s amazing to see the people placed so carefully in someone’s life. It’s amazing to see how little struggles are compared to His glory. It’s amazing to know God, the Holy Spirit, & Jesus live, and interact, and guide, and cherish, and shape, and give, and forgive, and work together as perfect one for imperfect sons and daughters.
Why am I so quick to turn my eyes from these beautiful blessings?
