To celebrate derek beaulieu appointment as the 2014-16 Calgary Poet Laureate, his concrete poem “Prose of the Trans-Canada” was projected onto the Calgary Tower during the evenings of April 28 and 29, 2014

In 1913 Blaise Cendrars created his monumental Prose of the Trans-Siberian, a milestone in the history of artists books and visual poetry. When the intended edition of 150 copies was laid end-to-end they measured the same length as the height of the symbol of Parisian Modernity, the Eiffel Tower.

A towering moment in beaulieu’s on-going exploration of letraset as a medium for concrete poetry, Prose of the Trans-Canada, issued as Moments Cafe No. 8, is published in a strictly limited edition of 150 copies.
