book review: SHADOWGRAPHS AND LEGENDS

by R. Murray Schafer
Arcana Editions (R.R. No. 2, Indian River, Ontario, K0L 2B0, Canada), 2004
reviewed by Tim Gaze

This is the most recent book by R. Murray to contain handwritten, calligraphic words, symbols, squiggles &
pictures. Some of his pen-work can be described as asemic writing.
SHADOWGRAPHS AND LEGENDS is full of playful, mostly single page games and meditations. After the
book's title page, the first page says:
To begin: a pile of unblemished paper
The pens are arranged to the side
The rest of the page contains a continuation of this thought, illustrated by pictures of more pens, a hand holding

a pen, a reading lamp, the corner of a window-frame, and some branching synaptic nerves.
The same tone, of exploration and fun, is repeated throughout.
I first knew Schafer as the author of a book about the sonic environment we inhabit: The Soundscape: the

tuning of the world (several editions). Then, to my pleasure, I discovered from Rasula & McCaffery's
Imagining Language (MIT Press, 2001) that R. Murray has also written a number of books which touch upon
asemic writing:

Dicamus et Labyrinthos (Arcana, 1984)
Ariadne (Arcana, 1985)
The Chaldean Inscription (Arcana, 1978)

Here are a few sample pages from SHADOWGRAPHS:
