There's a gap between the earlier concrete poetry and a later one, beginning in the 70s I think, when opacity rather than transparency and illegibility becomes the order of the day. There were earlier visual poets than Ullán in Spain, but he represents that transition.

OK, I was waiting to see if someone else would ask this. "when opacity rather than transparency and illegibility becomes the order of the day" -- you mean the order of the day used to be transparency and illegibility, and now it's opacity? This is...opaque.
