All three illustrated Poetry & Print prints. Lovingly created by Joe Buchanan using letterpress and linocut with words by Maria McMillan. Three miniature works of art that look beautiful together. 

With the Poetry in Print series printmaker Joe Buchanan and writer Maria McMillan continue their long standing collaboration that includes fringe festivals, giant poetry banners hanging from  buildings, protest street theatre, satirical leaflets, two children and thousands of meals which Joe cooks exceptionally well and Maria eats with some genius. 

This set contains all three of the illustrated prints in Diatom Press's original Poetry & Print series:

  • Sab
  • The sea is a bilious field
  • Under the Stars.

All text is extracted from poetry by Maria McMillan, and has been set in Gloucester Condensed. Linocut and letterpress were both printed on the 8-5 Adana Press Joe shares with his twin brother and which lives in the Diatom Press studio, an old railway worker's hut in their mother's back garden. 

All prints are securely packaged with firm card and plastic wrapping helping to ensure they arrive in pristine condition.
