The paper edition of a glimpse of conveys the idea of a hybrid narrative from its homonymous, digital edition. All works of contents are linked associatively. It is a bilingual edition edited by Dimitra Ioannou.
aglimpseof 01 titled Now I Tell This Story The Way I Dream (2013) is largely inspired by an extract from Lust / A Sailor’s Slight Identity by Kathy Acker. The paper aglimpseof 01 is set on the banks of the Ilissos, on the Dream Island, to the centre of the Labyrinth, at the house which is cut open like a doll’s house, while the Hour is getting Blue, the night welcomes the erotic grotesque, and the black bird of memory flies upon the city.

aglimpseof 02 titled from mouth to mouth (2014) is dedicated to human mouth as an organ of speech, a space of silence and a channel of inarticulate sounds. Soundless, or not, monologues, cries of anger, biological metaphors, figures of speech and out of tune vocalizations compose a fluid dimension, in nuanced tones narrative of the human-body-mouth. It opposes the stereotype and the archetype through the critical, penetrating, erotic and unofficial voicings of its language investigations. For more, see here.
