Book summary

Poetry. Make Now Press of Los Angeles and Atlas Press of London have released a revised and updated edition of The OULIPO COMPENDIUM in a limited edition print run of 1,000 copies to be released from Los Angeles and 1,000 copies to be released from London. THE OULIPO COMPENDIUM is a dictionary of mathematical constraints used in the composition of literature. The Oulipo's foremost concern has been to devise formal constraints and compose a few examples of each for the express purpose of pointing to the potential these formalisms create. Oulipian constraints have been responsible for some of the most original works of literature ever produced. [via]
