Spacecraft Press
 is proud to announce the release of Nicole Pucci’s Feynmanese. A total of 40 copies were produced, all of which are for sale.

Feynmanese repurposes theoretical physicist Richard Feynman`s visual diagrams of atomic behaviour into an asemic language. Viewed in this way, Feynman`s contorting, hexagonal glyphs become the hallmarks of the post-nuclear age, where atoms conduct violent dialogues in the environment.

Nicole Pucci is a Calgary-based freelance visual artist. She specializes in illustration but also creates assets for indie game development studio BUMP Games and has done graphic design work for non-profit agencies.

Feynmanese is available for $4.00 including domestic postage (+$1 non-Canadian postage). To order, please contact Ken Hunt at jkchunt@hotmail.com. Paypal is preferred. Money orders in CAN dollars are also accepted.
