Gerry Gilbert's brightly imaginative artist book is a visually and structurally surprising poetic experience. The small, square volume is comprised of three poetry movements, each printed on vibrantly colored paper and separated by an accordion style binding that physically pivots the reader on the page. The writing is textured by varying typefaces, mimicking typewriters to handwriting to the official-looking imprints of a stamped date. In excellent condition and a pleasure to hold, "Lease" is possibility itself when imagining creative practices for the publication of poetry.
