LASTGLACIALMAXIMUM is a beautiful large format hardcover book of visual poetry that extends and refines the experiments Richard Skelton began in 2012 with Limnology. In imitation of the action of glaciers, this new work visits a variety of algorithmic ‘destructive’ processes upon what is thought to be one of the oldest recorded texts from the British corpus – Caedmon’s Hymn, an example of alliterative verse originally composed in the 7th century CE.
LASTGLACIALMAXIMUM was originally published in a special numbered edition accompanied by a set of four unique prints and an eponymous music CD.
