This design started as an asemic poem, I then ran it through a new app to experiment how the app worked, it led to a collage poem of colours and the asemic writing now hidden. I love conceptual poetry so to hide meaning within meaning over colour…yass! Then I added a statue as I wanted to play with the Old Masters and their idea of beauty. I mirrored the image by accident but this new visual poem was so perfect for Marcus Slease’s Puppy cover.
“This gentle series of prose poems follows the adventures of a young dog and his boy as they negotiate life in a small Spanish town during the pandemic lockdown. In Marcus Slease’s world, Puppy is everywhere, like the proverbial jewel of interdependence in the Buddhist image of Indra’s Net that opens the book. This net reminds us that “no one knows where the soul sits.” Is it everywhere or is it nowhere, here or not here? On the way to find out, Puppy and boy romp through a range of everyday objects (urine, sand, wood) and not so everyday references (the New Testament, Greek Mythology, the music of Bach and Max Richter). Can they reconcile the domestic and the wild? Like so much of Slease’s writing, this book is at once ludic, lucid and profoundly welcoming.” – Peter Jaeger, author of Postamble : For an Invisible Sangha.
