I'm proud to say running concurrently with the fest will be ZimZalla: an exhibition at the Hardy Tree. Leading the way in innovative poetry publishing for last number of years, the Enemies project is delighted to present an exhibiting of all 25 of the ZimZalla poetry objects, evidencing that there is nothing in the UK poetry scene quite like ZimZalla. Visithttp://zimzalla.co.uk/ to peruse their wares and http://hardytreegallery.com/ for more information on the wonderful gallery.
“zimZalla is a unique publishing imprint specialising in literary objects. With twenty-five objects published to date, including poetry tea bags, greetings cards, scented chocolate bars and a backwards book in a miniature coffin, zimZalla celebrates the handmade, the ephemeral and the eccentric. zimZalla at the Hardy Tree, co-curated by The Enemies Project, is a never before available opportunity to see all twenty-five objects in one place at one time. A true trip down the rabbit hole.”
