The 2019 print issue (Volume 7) of TAB explores the concept of containment, both of a poem as container that delivers words to the reader’s eyes and ears and of paper and typography as containers. The visual language in this issue experiments with tags, labels, tracking methods, scanning, etc., upon which we rely for accurate delivery and that reveal the final experience contained within and across pages. The materials used in this issue play with transparency and hiding what is contained.

The January 2019 issue features original poetry by Ivy Alvarez, Ann Fisher-Wirth, Sonja Johanson, Vandana Khanna, Erika Meitner, Anya Silver, Maggie Smith, and Lesley Wheeler as well as a translation by Ilya Kaminsky and Katie Farris of a poem by Anna Akhmatova.

TAB took a hiatus from online issues during 2019 in order to make the issues in the Archives more accessible and to change online platforms. Online issues return in 2020.
