To learn more about visual/concrete poetry, explore The Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry. The Sackner Archive is the result of the effort of Ruth and Marvin Sackner who turned their home into a museum!
Its initial mission was to establish a collection of books, critical texts, periodicals, ephemera, prints, drawings, collages, paintings, sculptures, objects, manuscripts, and correspondence dealing with precedent and contemporary, internationally produced, concrete and visual poetry.To watch the video Concrete!, made by the Sachners' daughter, Sara, click here.
They added examples of typewriter art and poetry, experimental calligraphy, correspondence art, stamp art, sound poetry, performance poetry, micrography, assembling periodicals, ‘zines,’ graphic design, and artist magazines as well as conventional poetry and prose written by concrete/visual poets and artists in the collection.
