Forwards Always - Poems to be read aloud

Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
Illustrate and design a book that frames my nonsense poetry effectively. The design work needed to further convey the tone of the poems, sometimes sincere, sometimes daft. We referenced old school books, 80’s poets and paperback Penguins. Play is crucial, we used type, footnotes and the non-sequitur positioning of image and word to promote the performative act of reading the book.

How was the illustration used:
Self published

How did you make this work:
All artwork and poetry my own unless otherwise cited in the book Type and design made in collaboration with Orlando Lloyd Self published as a first edition of 1000 copies
