Longtime collaborators, Bernstein and Lehrer have joined forces again on a (large) collection of (short) visual poems, working title: Five Oceans in a Teaspoon. Containing 225 poems, this work speaks to the madness, vulnerability, aspiration and language of our time. It transcends convention and reflects the life experiences and artistry of Bernstein and Lehrer at the height of their creative powers. The book is divided into eight thematic movements: Lake Childhood; Tracings; Subtractions and Addictions; Front Lines; Dream Central; On the Streets, Under Lock’N Key; He and She; Growing Down.

Many of the poems included in the collection have appeared in literary magazines, newspapers, and online publications. Eight of the visualized poems appeared as works in progress in Type Tells Tales, an anthology of “Typographic Narratives” by Gail Anderson and Steven Heller (Thames & Hudson, 2017).
