Curious Hands

The beginning of 2015 saw my illustrating a series of poems by Sarah Perry, who in 2014 spent a month in Soho as part of Cityread London, organised by writer development organisation Spread the Word. 24 poems see through each hour of the day in various locations in Soho, from Oxford Street to Brewer Street, from Soho Parish School to Golden Square. I produced a monochrome image for each poem, picking up on the content and themes of each one, and also produced the colour front & back cover. The front illustration plays on the idea of a map in the lines on the palm of your hand.
