Black Box by Judson Hamilton
“Illusion has an uncanny way of endearing itself to the weary.” So begins Judson Hamilton’s astonishingly unique jaw-punch of a chapbook Black Box. So unique I’m having a hard time making a comparison. Let’s try this: think of a sober Philip K. Dick, after intense group therapy, reading a Rudy Wurlitzer novel in lobby of a midwestern hotel. Black Box is filled with brass bands, GPS systems, a tower of troubadours, punctured organs, and a cast of unforgettable characters that’ll have to suffice until the next Hamilton invention.
5.5 x 8.5 chapbook. Letterpress and hand-stamped covers in a quasi-3D effect. Printed on high quality #24 copy paper in a limited edition of 75 hand numbered copies.
