LAND By Thom Igwe-Walker
5x A6 booklets, 20 pages each, Black & white printing, Saddle stitched, Softcover, Comes housed in colour sleeve, 2016
... a series of five booklets containing selected poems by Thom Walker.
The work focuses on the ways we negotiate our physical and sensory experience of the landscapes around us (most frequently featured are those of northern England and Scotland).
Shifting from nonsense writing to autobiographical work, the poems are somewhere between the worlds of Ivor Cutler and Emily Dickinson.
This series of booklets brings together 52 poems from the past year and a half, grouping them in themes. A set of new poems written in response to the area in West Yorkshire where the writer grew up.
