Without Form is a meticulous erasure of the Holy Bible, only its chapter and verse notation spared by repeat Blasted Tree contributor Ben Robinson. This ambitious visual poetry project encompasses all sixty-six books of the Bible—over one thousand pages—published in print in its entirety and animated for easy online viewing. The Blasted Tree has made each biblical book (“Genesis,” “Exodus,” etc.) into its own chapbook, some upwards of fifty pages long, others just a single page, all bound into white card stock and a tissue paper flyleaf with white thread and an ultra-minimal dust jacket, every cover unique, and only one of each chapbook produced.
