“A single, long, illustrated poem is very difficult to push. I must say I had an easy time with my first three books, which Harper Collins accepted immediately and produced so beautifully. I was incredibly lucky finding Design Foundry, who had just started their new imprint, Paper Project. Of course, we had worked together for almost six years now, on many projects, I with articles on poetry and poetry, and them with graphic arts, so we knew each other well, which is vital in an unusual project like this one. It needed to be done with immense attention to detail, which would not have been possible, I think, with an ordinary publishing house which is naturally not focussed on design and art,” adds Tanya.
