Giovanna Sandri (1923-2002) produced a unique body of verbo-visual poetry over the course of her thirty-year career. In addition to her six volumes of poetry/poetics, her writings were published in journals and anthologies internationally, and her visual texts featured in numerous exhibitions of concrete poetry in the 1960s and '70s. A contemporary of the Gruppo 63, Sandri stood apart from it, and her work is one of the most singular of the Italian Neo-Avant-Garde. 

Guy Bennett is the author of several works of poetry, non-poetry, and numerous translations. His writing has been featured in magazines and anthologies in the United States and abroad, and presented in poetry and arts festivals internationally. Publisher of Mindmade Books (formerly Seeing Eye Books) and co-editor of Otis Books | Seismicity Editions, he lives in Los Angeles and teaches at Otis College of Art and Design.
