todd sanders lives and works in pittsburgh pa as a graphic designer, poet and book publisher, though in another life he thought he was an architect. he has 2 collections of poetry "underland" and "lack river" published by the air and nothingness press. When he is not writing he can usually be found reading.

George Quasha's work in poetry in recent years — following Amanita's Hymnal, Somapoetics, and Giving the Lily Back Her Hands — has continued in several strands: the "axial" poems (a selection of which comprises In No Time), the "oneirica" (including Ainu Dreams), and an open modality working with both the "somapoetic" and axial principles (The Preverbs of Tell- News Torqued from Undertime) The axial principle extends across mediums to visual and sound work-sound performance, drawings, stone works, installation and video.

His ongoing collaborations with Charles Stein and Gary Hill, begun in the 1970s, include sound poetry (e.g., Tale Enclosure, a Gary Hill single-channel video), text and on-site development of the installation Disturbance (among the jars) at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, various kinds of writing and live performances, the latter extending his over twenty years of performance and dialogical work with Charles Stein. Also with Charles Stein he has co-authored many works, including three recent books in a series, Gary Hill's Projective Installations 1-3: Hand Heard / liminal objects, Tall Ships, and Viewer.

He has edited several poetry anthologies including America a Prophecy (with Jerome Rothenberg), Open Poetry (with Ron Gross), and Active Anthology (with Susan Quasha); the journal Stony Brook (with Roger Guedalla); and, recently, The Station Hill Blanchot Reader.

He received an NEA Fellowship in poetry. In 1978, after teaching many years (SUNY Stony Brook, Bard College, Naropa Institute, and The New School for Social Research), he and Susan Quasha, with whom he continues to work and collaborate, founded Station Hill Press.

The poems published herein were written in collaboration with Chie (buun) Hasegawa. The poems and the essay were originally published in Ainu Dreams, © 1999 by George Quasha, Chie Hasegawa and Station Hill Press

"When my grandfather was a very young man he trained as a journeyman at a bookbinding shop in the small town of Hedemora. He purchased the shop in 1905 and continued working there until my father took over. Producing the leather-bound volumes was time consuming since each step of the process was done by hand.

I spent much of my childhood playing or working in the shop with my father. Although I never considered becoming a bookbinder, the years of intimate contact with that craft provided me with skills and experience which I continue to draw upon.

The first exhibition I had was in 1967. At the time I worked with graphic art. Later I began to paint and explore different materials and techniques. Today I work primarily with sculpture and painting as well as computer art. Some of the materials I work with are metal, paper and leather. Many of the objects I make borrow visual and structural elements from books."
