Nico Vassilakis


Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery (map) Georgetown
Sat., Nov. 24, 6 p.m. 2012


Vassilakis is a local poet whose work challenges the very idea of what a word is; some of his work is made up of stretched-out vowels or words that have been smeared or manipulated in interesting ways. Tonight, he introduces the world to his work as the editor of a new anthology titled The Last Vispo Anthology: Visual Poetry 1998-2008. It’s such an avant-garde work that poetry publishers didn’t touch it; Vassilakis teamed with local comics publisher Fantagraphics to produce the book. This is the missing link between words as symbols for thoughts and words as works of art in and of themselves.
