Notes: "Texts from Aristotle and others, observations of readings and events at L.A.C.E. and Modern Language Association, culled by the author-printer, Johanna Drucker. Printed between Summer 2010 and Summer 2012 at the Horn Press on my Vandercook, on Mohawk Superfine, using many fonts in many runs"--Colophon.
"The texts in the book are from Aristotle, adapted and modified, from theories of chaos, complexity, and stochastic processes, from observation of the poetry scene and participation in readings, a large MLA reading held in LA, and of course all are modified in the composing stick, at the type case. ... No two copies of Stochastic Poetics are alike. The edition is a completely inconsistent edition. Each sheet went through the press numerous times and the placement, while not random, was not controlled by any register marks or jigs. So the dynamic effect on the pages differs depending on how the sheets fell. Every bit of the book is set in letterpress, with metal spacers for justification and lock-up. No plaster, adhesives, or other non-traditional materials were used in the production of the work. The book took two years to write, compose, and print. 39 copies were completed, on Mohawk Superfine, of which 30 were offered for sale. Covers are etched aluminum bound with linen thread.”--publisher's website.
