MA|DE
A Trip to the ZZOO
(2020, Collusion Books)

• full-colour variant cover (wolf or deer designs)
• limited edition of 100 numbered copies
• released December 2020

A collection of collaborative poems that in some manner mention, reference or explore animal life; the title’s variant spelling is a deliberate gesture, signalling to the reader that the poems only share a partial resemblance to the spectacle of animal exhibition at a traditional zoo. These poems often venture into the territory of ecopoetics, with environmentally-conscious through-lines being a frequent presence in the work, either implicitly or explicitly.

A Barely Conceal Design
(2020, Puddles of Sky Press)

• limited edition of 54 copies
• released December 2020

This book of short constraint-based poems by MA|DE is “full of bizarre twists in language, rich images, and an electrical charge that can only come from the rubbing together of two imaginative minds.” — Michael e. Casteels

Test Centre
(2019, ZED Press)

“Some questionnaires can only be taken together.” Bechdel, Turing, Draize, Rorschach, Uhlenhuth, are just names of a series of tests used to question, quantify, and label the world. In Test Centre, these and more pose deep questions as its poems crack open and peek into your soul, and perhaps you will even pose a question to what you find there.

MARK LALIBERTE
Brick Brick Brick
(2010, BookThug)

This collection presents a series of visual meditations on the subject of “assembly poetics”. Like much of Laliberte’s recent output, this project hovers around — but never quite steps into — the cultural zone that pure, popular comics inhabit.
