A Book of Glyphs

By Edward Sanders.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>A Book of Glyphs</I>.A Book of Glyphs is a facsimile reproduction of legendary author, musician and Fugs founder Ed Sanders’ first book-length work of glyphs, which he created in Florence, Italy in 2008, using colored pencils and a small sketchbook. Though each piece stands on its own, collectively the 72 glyphs convey, with characteristic humility and humor, many of the themes explored by Sanders over his long and diverse career, including history, myth, activism and pacifism. The glyph--“a drawing that is charged with literary, emotional, historical or mythic and poetic intensity”--has been a dimension of Sanders’ poetry since 1962; he cites Zen rock gardens, the markings on Egyptian tombs and the typographic designs in John Cage’s writings as influences in the development of the form. Sanders’ name for the original notebook is “Smile-Book of Grace-Joy,” which aptly describes the range of concerns explored in this important and joyful work.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Improbable

Kate Garber

But whether or not one reads the Notes, it is a crowning honor to the Glyphs that they can speak in the most fuzzily dreamlike way, making perfect (and different) sense to each reader. Even the most innocent scan through the book will be rewarding.

Hyperallergic

Tim Keane

These glyphic works fulfill those grand objectives through modest means and simple tools. Sanders’ visual and textual dictions are borrowings from the alphabets and emblems of ancient civilizations. His unassuming colored-pencil drawings engage the viewer-reader directly in the personal, present moment of their creation.
