Expanding Ideas: Words into Poems and Artists Books with Bertha Rogers
Before poets could read and write, they spoke their poems, and they drew and carved on available surfaces. When the monks began copying holy texts, they weren’t satisfied with words only; they began illuminating the manuscripts with both sacred and profane drawings and paintings. William Blake was famous for his poems rich with watercolors. What we call “outsider art” frequently features words and images. – B. Rogers
