Fourier's Birthday

Speaking of the Post-Modernist Baroque, here's a message from Spineless Books:
Happy Charles Fourier’s Birthday

April 7th is Charles Fourier’s 234th birthday and the first birthday of Joshua Corey’s singular Fourier Series. Fourier Series is a magnificent work of poetry and book art, the winner of the Fitzpatrick-O’Dinn Award For Best Book Length Work of Constrained English Literature (2005), judged by Christian Bok, published by Spineless Books.

In celebration, Spineless Books has updated the Fourier Series web suite to include recordings of the author reading (recorded in the offices of Burning Deck Press), a PDF excerpt of the book’s inventive layout, and Fourier Electronique, a ten-minute electronic MP3 remix.

Spineless Books is an independent publishing house dedicated to the production and distribution, in print and electronic forms, of innovative literature with an emphasis on collaborative writing, formal experimentation, and utopian thought.

To date, Spineless Books has published seven books with spines including

2002: A Palindrome Story in 2002 Words by Nick Montfort and William Gillespie, with illustrations by Shelley Jackson and book design by Ingrid Ankerson

Drawn Inward, poetry by Mike Maguire

Letter to Lamont, by William Gillespie

and Mars Needs Lunch, by Jimmy Crater, based on a screenplay by June Crater Crash.
