john martone’s collages splice images and text drawn from Buddhism, radio schematics, cell biology, and natural history to open the Storage Case of the Unconscious. All of martone’s visual poems stand alone as individual works, but he assembles them into book-length sequences, where their effect is enhanced. This volume offers a triptych of these visual books, in full, for the first time.

john martone’s many collections of poetry include st. john’s wort, shooting star and ksana. He currently produces his handmade books and ebooks under the samuddo / ocean imprint.
