152pp, illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Lorraine Wild, Green Dragon Office. “The old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” is turned on its side in “Words Don't Mean Much” - Senon Williams’ new book of aphoristic phrasing. Far fewer words are needed to create an illuminating image in the mind’s eye, conjuring immediate multi-sensory experiences. This book of poems is derived from the text in Williams’ ink on paper drawings. The drawings are textual extractions and gather momentum within the book, exhibiting great attention to materials and craftsmanship. Every detail, from select paper to classic typeface, has been considered. An object, not unlike a sculpture, can be viewed from all sides, handled - and leafed through in the case of this book - front to back, back to front, or randomly opened. “Words Don't Mean Much” is a small pocket book, easy to conceal. A book to keep all to yourself or share intimately.”
Los Angeles native Senon Williams is a lifelong artist and musician. A founding member of the always-engaging Dengue Fever, Williams’ visual work finds space in the natural, exposing outstanding and devastating stages of human evolution. “To provoke thought, a question works better than answers. I enjoy to start a story I resolve in different ways depending on my mood."
A brand new, most handsome example of this charming new work additionally SIGNED by Senon Williams in ink.
