The extraordinary work of poet Philip Meersman is well known in his native Belgium and throughout Western Europe. His work has been described as "overwhelming and wonderful" with a style that permits the concept of an international language underlying his strong antiwar stance. With This Is Belgian Chocolate, Meersman's work is at last collected and presented in a gorgeous volume for a wider audience. Visual poems receive typographic treatments reminiscent of the work of Russian constructivist typographer El Lissitzky. With frequent humorous touches, the work flows across the page in a thoroughly enjoyable, original style. Meersman translates sound into verse and verse into sound, creating an incredible experiential form that is a pleasurable, immersive read.
