Collections shelved, these words
they gather dust.

The three poetry collections contained within these bound pages won a publishing competition.

The resultant book was published without a contract or Intellectual Property (IP) arrangement in place. Despite authors’ exhaustive attempts the promised contract was never attained.

Up against the publisher’s refusal to negotiate, and to stop selling unlicensed work, the artist found herself in the unfortunate position of having to fight for this book of prize winning poetry to be removed from sale.

dust jacket explores the decommissioned nature of a work (un)published.
