I’m very excited that my Now You Can Look sequence is going to be published by The Emma Press in September next year, in their art square format. That means Full! Colour! Illustration!
Now You Can Look is a Venn diagram of a book: part historical re-enactment, part fiction, part autobiography. It follows (sorta) the life of a visual artist from the ’30s, and what she has to break and remake in order to live the life she wants. We all have to do some of that smash and shuffle to get by, eh?
I love the work of The Emma Press. There’s no girl gang I’d rather be part of, and I’m very happy to be working with them.
Here’s a bit more about the sequence, and one of its poems.
