Visual Poetry

Visual poetry has a long history, from George Herbert in the 17th century, to Apollinaire, the Dadists, Dylan Thomas, and of course Concrete Poetry. The basic idea is to integrate words and visuals, although some, particularly Dadists and the occasional Language Poet, remove words altogether to create a poetry of punctuation and miscellaneous signs.
