An artists' book. With a single poem divided onto 15 triangular panels printed letterpress in three colors (blue, yellow, gray) on both sides, attached. Panels unfold into geometric pattern. When folded together, panels fit into a triangular shaped printed box (7 in. x 7 in. x 7 in. x 1.75 in. deep).

"This Chapbook of poems is derived from two corrupted PDF download files of two related Dungeons & Dragons products: the first, the DM's Guide to the Immortals, was a rules compendium; the second, The Immortal Storm, was an adventure module used in conjunction with those rules. The corrupted files were useless for practical play, but the dissociated text created fascinating juxtapositions of words and ideas - a sort of found poetry. The result is a collection of bizarre, abstract, profound, and even humerous poems that lay somwhere between glitch, collage, and game"--Colophon.

"Poetry by Nathan Altice, designed and printed by students of the VCUarts Bowe House Press under the creative direction of Professor Jamie Mahoney -- Harding Coughter, Sam Curtis, Kassy Edwards, David Jones, Matt Klein, Lige Lu, Lauren Puga, Gwen Stinger & Shelby Thompson"--Colophon.
