The World Turned Upside Down 2020 #haiflu edition

This is a modern take on an old chapbook, first printed in York 200 years ago, documents some of the experiences of lockdown from people in York.  Working with Explore York, poets Penny Boxall and Janet Dean and inspired by Liv’s Torc’s Project Haiflu, we got people to share haiku poems and doodles about life during lockdown in York.  Which I then hand printed a limited edition with letterpress type on a reclaimed Adana 8×5 desktop printing machine.
