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 five of Diatom Press's original Poetry & Print series.

  • Sab
  • The sea is a bilious field
  • Under the Star
  • This is the miracle. 
  • Fucking beautiful

All text is extracted from poetry by Maria McMillan, and has been  set in Gloucester Condensed. Lincout and letterpress were 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.
