beaulieu - chessboard.JPGSpacecraft Press is proud to announce the release of derek beaulieu’s Chessboard (for Christian Bök). A total of 40 copies were produced, 20 of which are for sale.

derek beaulieu’s visual poem Chessboard (for Christian Bök) presents an 8×8 grid of monochromatic squares, an image inspired by the pixellated portraits of the newly discovered Trappist-1 planetary system (available online). The Trappist planetary system, named by NASA after an order of monks whose members rarely spoke, contains seven roughly Earth-sized planets which orbit an ultra-cool dwarf star. Three of these planets orbit the star (which is, itself, only slightly larger than Jupiter), within its “habitable zone”. In other words, these three planets are more likely than the others in the system to be habitable, or possibly to support extraterrestrial life.

Chessboard (for Christian Bök) is available for $5.00 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.

SPACECRAFT PRESS O43: EXCERPTS FROM “DETOUR” BY SACHA ARCHER

Spacecraft Press is proud to announce the release of Sacha Archer’s Detour. A total of 50 copies were produced, 25 of which are for sale.

Sacha Archer is detour.jpga Canadian writer currently residing in Ontario. Sacha was the recipient of the 2008 P.K. Page Irwin Prize for his poetry and visual art, and in 2010 he was chosen to participate in the Elise Partridge Mentor Program. His writing has appeared in journals such as ditch poetry, filling Station, ACTA Victoriana, h&, illiterature, and NōD. He has work forthcoming in Experiment-O, and (parenthetical). His chapbook, Dishwashing Event, Part One: Tianjin, China was published by no press, while Dishwashing Event, Part Two: Ontario, Canada is forthcoming from Puddles of Sky Press.

Detour is a conceptual translation of the Dao De Jing. The Dao is traditionally translated as The Way. This can be understood as a path. In Detour, I sent the text of the Dao De Jing on a detour, passing it through a number of automatic internet translators. Each section, passed back and forth and through the translators, was translated (altered, progressively lost and/or found) 81 times (81 being an auspicious number, and also the number of sections in the text). While the resultant text is a very different animal than the original, there is certainly an oddly vibrant fidelity of intent embedded in it.

Detour 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.
