Anna Steinberg : Agony: A Poem of Genocide

Commercial Publishing

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
This was a commission from Live Canon, to illustrate a reflective response to a book length poem on the theme of genocide.

How was the illustration used:
A book cover and ten inside illustrations to accompany a long poem about the history of genocide by war correspondent Mark Huband.

How did you make this work:
Printing ink was applied to paper with a roller, scanned in and digitally cut and collaged. I wanted to compliment the text, without re-iterating it, and convey the message of the horror in a way that would encourage contemplation.
