“blockplay is an experiment in mindful semiotics, a retelling of babylonian towers, and a manual to destruction as play. ”
- Vilde Valerie

“A new poetry for the ludic, Blockplay merges familiar shapes with the scribbled word in a Steinian fashion, releasing the association with play from its domestic constraints and rendering it sensual, uncanny.”

- Nadia de Vries

This commemorative book will be produced to mark a Jenga poem commission by The Poetry Society that was created for the visitors of The Poetry Café.
