We made two deluxe Solander Boxes for two key projects that the Poetry Library are exhibiting with Simon Armitage’s Poetry Parnassus in the next few weeks in the Poetry Library. We worked closely with risk-enamoured Head Librarian Chris McCabe and logophile curator Nick Dubois on boxes that will archive hundreds of poems:
‘Polip Poems‘ came out of the Polip Literature festival in Prishtina and is currently on show in the Library.
‘The World Record’ sees hundreds of Parnassus poets from around the world writing their poem on paper made from fibres gathered from around the globe.
Furthermore, we brought one of our travelling screens to print Au in situ on the luxury writing desk that will be autographed by every visiting poet from around the world who is taking part in the Parnassus.
