Letters: Michael Morris and Concrete Poetry profiles artist Michael Morris during the period between 1964 and 1971. The book has a particular focus on concrete poetry, considered as perhaps the first global art movement, springing up in South and North America, Japan and Europe in the mid to late 1950s.

Recognising the potential of concrete poetry as an area that included design, poetry, architecture, art, and communications, Morris co-curated an important exhibition of Concrete Poetry at the University of British Columbia Fine Arts Gallery in 1969. It presented a selection of Morris' large paintings and a selection of international concrete poetry from the period. In addition to Morris's work, the book features the work of artists including Eugen Gomringer, Augusto de Campos, Edgard Braga, Steve McCaffery, bpNichol, bill bissett, Ray Johnson, Ian Hamilton Finlay.
