Robert Creeley & Archie Rand: Drawn & Quartered
Poetry by Robert Creeley & Art by Archie Rand
By Robert Creeley. Artwork by Archie Rand.
Drawn & Quartered is a collaboration between preeminent American avant-garde poet Robert Creeley and award-winning artist Archie Rand. In Creeley's words: ''The procedure was for Archie to slide me an image on the litho paper. I'd try a take or two to get the feel, writing on a usual sheet of typing paper, then resolve on a particular quatrain, put it with the litho sheet related--and on to the next. So we worked through the afternoon until, finally, all fifty-four poems were finished. Then I copied each poem under its respective image on the litho sheet....I felt as if I had been in some fantastic traffic of narratives, all the echoes and presences and situations--like very real life indeed. I loved the almost baroque feel of the drawings, the echo of old-time illustrations and children's books. Whatever, Archie's sure got me. The rest you can judge for yourself.''
