The Concrete Poetry movement blossomed in the aftermath of WWII, eventually making way for the Visual Poets, whose use of typography to form shapes and motion in the written word. This modern approach echoed the importance of lines, color, and balance in modern abstract art. Often cultural or political, or whimsical or vulnerable – this collection stunningly marries graphic design and delicate writing.
