My Poetry Book Design: physical, not just digital.


The design of each of my five books of poetry is based on different size, proportions, margins and text blocks that make reference to Medieval and Renaissance design and musical interval scales (musical scales reflected in proportions).

Once designed, I print the books at home and have them bound by a local craftsman in Montreux (‘La Reliure des Planches’).

I make the .pdf versions available on my site but for me the physical object is of central importance with the design being a fundamental part of the expression.
