Asemic Writing: The New Post-Literate

Michael Jacobson
The list author says: "This is a list of books that I find interesting. I use the term 'post-literate' because these works tend to use visual as opposed to verbal literacy. Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. Asemic works are art pieces which resemble writing but don't have any verbal sense; they often appear as abstract calligraphy, illegible writing, or damaged writing."
