As Ronald Johnson wrote, William Benton's witty and inventive Birds single-handedly resurrected the Concrete Poetry movement. First published in 1972 by the Graphic Arts Workshop of the Portland Museum Art School in Oregon, as a limited edition of 200 copies, this new edition includes an introduction by Benton as well as several new poems.
