Apokalupsis

Apokalupsis
by Wilber H. Schilling

Apokalupsis was created as part of the End of Times Broadside Exchange (St. Joseph, MN, April 2012). It’s an exploration of the end of the Mayan calendar, predictions of doom and what one might choose to take with to ‘the other side’. It contains a listing of the record albums that Chip Schilling would take into the next world. The titles are printed on a printing of an actual record album. Apokalupsis is the first ‘indulgence’ produced by Indulgence Press, created in the spirit of original papal indulgences, it grants lenience towards miscreant aural enthusiasms.

Maple Seeds
poem by Thomas R. Smith

They twirl down in May wind, heavy noses aimed at earth. Their job is to pierce like tiny darts, slice through leaves to reach their target, blunt fins upended in grass.

Most will fail, but their failing helps a few succeeed. The maple race goes on. Both are the tree: the gigantic wooden structure each downed flyer knows how to build, and also this community of desire scattered in the shade

150 copies were printed in 1996 by Wilber H. Schilling in a collaboration with Amanda Degener for Hand papermaking magazine's second portfolio.

The Conundrum of the Workshops
poem by Rudyard Kipling

An excerpt of this poem was first used by Wilber H. Schilling in the creation of an artists’ book titled, Art Babble. This broadside contains the entire poem, which speaks of an artist’s self-doubt—the struggle between appreciating one’s own work and questioning its validity. The tag-line of the poem, “but is it Art?” is a sentiment that resounds in the heart and mind of many who create. The text is set next to an image of Lexicon from Schilling’s Decayed Volumes series. Printed archival inkjet and letterpress.
