The Invisible Library is a book of poems that reframes the presence of the book in the in our collective imagination, and in the increasingly frenetic world we live in. The term "invisible books" refers to book titles that only appear in other books, that is to say all manner of books unwritten, unread, unpublished, and unfound. Wilson, a poet, editor and publisher has written a collection of invisible book poems that are at once startling and revelatory in their imagistic and metaphorical intent. Each poem captures the nature of a compelling and improbable volume, and delves into the very essence of human imagination. Within these poems are striking voices from the past, the present and the future that lead the reader into fascinating thematic and psychological territory. The Invisible Library, Wilson's fifth collection, explores our passion for the book as an instinctive and cultural touchstone. Much like Guttenberg's unmatched technology, this finely-crafted collection captures the personal within the universal.

Paul Wilson is the author of The Fire Garden, Dreaming My Father's Body, a finalist for the City of Regina Book Award; and The Long Landscape, poetry, finalist for the Saskatchewan Book of the Year and Poetry Award and winner of the City of Regina Book Award. Wilson's fourth collection of poetry, Turning Mountain, was published in 2007. He was born in Lacombe, Alberta and lives in Regina, Saskatchewan.

"Paul Wilson has this transparency, this chameleon capacity to become what he sees. It is as if he would absorb the whole world and offer it back as a gift." Rosemary Sullivan
