Neon Glittery’s New Chapbook
Glit is about to hit the fan. Prepare yourselves for this onslaught of Neon Glittery material. For on September 1st, 2011 your life will change forever. Bits and pieces of glitter will get stuck in your head. Experimental poetry and design is coming to decorate the inner most workings of your mind. Simply put, let it happen. You can’t fight this glitter based life form. Accept it and watch your life sparkle and shine with the power of billions of pieces of decoration.
Neon Glittery is a rare thing indeed: the first entirely glitter-based life form. Born Elizabeth Ashley Arnold she eventually evolved into a higher life form. For whatever reason, that happens to be glitter held together by strong, artistically inclined neon molecules. Or something, I don’t know, I’m not a scientist, I’m just a blogging sloth. This neon-glittery creature creates some unique art so who am I to speculate about its origins.
The chapbook is called “nEonsense”. Neon has begun to create it with her sweet style. You’ll notice for the teaser image (above) she uses the affectionate phrase “bb” meaning “baby”. What I like about Neon’s work is the affection and attention to aesthetics. Poetry by Neon includes a certain amount of particular spacing or symbols. Obviously for this one she goes for the poem taking up every possible inch to imply space. Usually people ignore those margins. Neon hugs them, showing space to be part of the poem too.
Hype is strong with this one. A basic “this is happening” post on Facebook caught a couple of passers-by, including the head of the infinitely prestigious “Hot-Lit Gossip” blog, a world famous chair, and Steve Roggenbuck. I saw it too and freaked out. Finally the rumors from twitter that Neon sent herself were finally confirmed on the infinitely believable Facebook. Over 98 comments for a single photo (the one you see above you) only confirm this rabid neon-based fan base.
What do you get along with your book of poetry? As Neon’s work is extremely visual, you can pay the $9 for epic bright pages and wordscapes (is wordscapes a word? Do I care if it isn’t?). The bonuses are pretty damn excellent. For $2 extra dollars (that’s $11 for the mathematically challenged poetry fans) you get a bird print and surprise watercolors. Neon often lives off of eating the prints of her bird pictures (see here) so that’s a steal. Her deluxe package includes a mix tape of her music, which is similar to her visual output: bright, shiny, and emotionally charged. You’d be a fool not to get the plush $13 mix tape deal. I live in music though so keep that in mind. Besides, you get your own personalized item. Already some famous net-citizens have ‘liked’ her offering.
You can taste the relevancy. With Neon Glittery, if you like relevancy, try her!
