Prague based publisher, Litteraria Pragensia, which churns out, singular, fun, quality, & pretty book things, it seems, faster than I can read – is presenting yet another exciting volume, containing essays from previous VLAK print magazines. David VIchnar, Olga Pekova & Louis Armand are forces of nature to be reckoned with. Stephen Walter (the subject of one of the essays), was kind enough to allow the reproduction of one his micro-magic-schizo-geopolisic maps).

Within our global-local environment there reverberates a polyphony of realities that are inter-actual, intersecting, constantly contested, and always in the process of assuming new forms, forming new hybrids, taking new plunges in transversal directions. The essays collected in the present volume have been written in and between London, Paris, Berlin and Prague and first appeared in the arts and poetics magazine VLAK. As such, the essays position themselves “in between”–internationally, interculturally, and intertextually–in order to map the terrain of an emergent poetics. Contributors include: Guillermo Suarez Ara, Matthew Hall, Louis Armand, Jeroen Nieuwland, David Vichnar & Olga Pek.
