You can back the project from £6 upwards and your support will be invaluable in enabling to raise the funds needed for publication costs.

I'm chuffed to have poems included, unpublished elsewhere and written specifically for the project, in response to the myriad of artworks which make up edition. My poem Billy Meat, for the project has just had a filmmaker create a new work in response to it - Billy goes Mad, by Daniel Smedley http://www.revolve-r.com/index.php/a-filmmaker-replies/film3/
