PULSE:FIRST 2014 Book Cover Design
FIRST 2014: PULSE consists of nine poems and 16 prose pieces that are diverse in style and form, and size and shape. Many of the pieces contrast polar opposites (for example, black and white; good and evil; night and day; and, life and death). There is not much grey.
Some of the writing is about writing. Much of the writing is layered—the reader is led on a journey and then flipped over. A core of the writing is about relationships—between partners, and with parents, children and animals. There are visions of dystopic presents and futures—even the humour has an edge.
