orphic tabs or sheets / differx. 2007-2020

One of my first flarfy & spam-derived “orphic tabs” (or “orphic sheets”) was published by the late William James Austin in 2007, in his mag “BLACKBOX”, Sept. 2007, the “summer collisions” issue.

About that issue I could only find an email in the Spidertangle newsletter, Sept. 16, 2007.
(The old link doesn’t work anymore, of course).


Other pieces appeared in Starfishpoetry, and Poetry Kessel-lo (two now offline sites).

Find others in The Flux I Share (Jan., 2008): ex now; & in SayingSomething:


Then serious asemic orphic tabs appeared in The New Postliterate (Sept., 2009):

A sheet in Italian has appeared in facebook only.

Here below are some of the pieces, and more ones (click to enlarge, read & enjoy):

10th anniversary – best of “tip of the knife”, issue 34

“The 10th Anniversary and next to the last issue of Tip of the Knife has been published including an introduction by Crag Hill. Unfortunately, we couldn’t pick one piece from every artist for this limited issue, but please know that all pieces are worthy or else Bill would not have selected them to be in the original issues. So thanks to all of the talented artists that helped to make this and all of the previous issues over the past ten years so special”.

karl young panel at louisville conference


Karl Young, who passed away September, 30, 2017, was a major poet, artist, and organizer, who, along with Karl Gartung and Ann Kingsbury, founded Woodland Pattern Book Center, a nonprofit organization in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood dedicated to poetry and its attendant arts. This panel covers Young’s work as a publisher, book artist, and founder of Light and Dust, one of the first online archives of Avant-garde poetry and an important predecessor to sites such as UbuWeb and the Electronic Poetry Center.

Karl Kempton, editor of Kaldron Magazine, the longest running magazine dedicated to visual poetry: “Karl [Young] proudly considered himself a supporter of the literature and arts of the fourth coast, the Great Lakes. As such he developed deep and lasting friendships in the region. He could telescope easily from local to regional to national and international in conversation, correspondence and in his articles and poetics.”

Charles Alexander, poet and director of CHAX Press, discusses Young and the creation of “books of experience,” which is defined and demonstrated. Tom Montag, poet and editor of MWPH Books, discusses Young’s relationship to Margins: A Review of Little Magazines and Small Press Books, the establishment of Young’s “Symposium Series” in the magazine, and its continuation after Margins’ demise. Jonny Lohr, poet and co-editor of Adjunct Press, discusses the utopian drive of Young’s publishing career, exploring the small press aesthetics from late-Mimeo Revolution to early-Web publications.
