A special and final issue of Tip of the Knife celebrating the Visual Poetry
of Bill DiMichele, editor of TOK for 10 years
On the one year anniversary on August 4th of Bill DiMichele’s passing, a special and final issue of Tip of the Knife celebrating the Visual Poetry of Bill has been published. This issue includes a curated selection from some of Bill’s numerous series. It was very difficult for Will and me to choose the work to publish since his body of work is so extensive and perse. Thanks to Crag Hill for adding some work from Score (Visual Poetry mag from the 80s that Crag, Laurie Schneider and Bill co-edited) and Burnhole (Bill’s poetry from the 90s).
Look forward to a re-release of this last issue, which will include a multi-media afterward by Crag with some help from Will (production and guitar). Thanks to Crag for all of his help and for being such a good friend. And thanks to all of the artists who have contributed to TOK over the years. We appreciate your contribution to the success of TOK.
Bill is missed by all who knew him as a friend and fellow artist. He is dearly missed by Will and me as a wonderful father and husband.
I often drawrite “langrids”. A langrid is a grid of language.
I always had in mind Robert Smithson’s A heap of language (1966), or Paul Celan’s Sprachgitter (1959).
In my work, grids and squares and weird geometric shapes collide with pieces of superimposed sentences, asemic bits, other shapes, syllables.

“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”.
