Tom Nash Poetry

 

"I Poured Her A Slug That Would Have Made Me Float Over A Wall" is a collection of poems by Tom Nash. The quote comes from Raymond Chandler, one of Nash's inspirations. The cover printed with black ink on black paper can only be fully read when held in a certain way. The poems inside are french fold pages of varying sizes,a way of creating a rhythm and also a sense of chaos, the poems don't link together so I wanted to keep them separate from each other.  Inside the folds of each poem are illustrations and patterns hidden from the reader. You have to explore the book as well as the poems to get the true feel.
