The Ghost in the Fog

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2009

‘The Ghost in the Fog: XXV The Corrections' is the ghost of a book. It documents corrections made by the editors, translators and contributors to 'How to Address the Fog: XXV Finnish Poems 1978-2002'. Published in 2005, the original went through five sets of amendments. This book reveals those changes. Only the corrected text, the marginal notes and the proof-readers' marks remain, forming a different kind of poetry – one of an accidental, concrete kind. It is a book of absences. Brought to light by Barrie Tullett from the corrections, observations and alterations of Ken Cockburn, Anni Sumari, Robin Fulton, David McDuff, Donald Adamson and Robyn Marsack.
