“Paper Kiss” Poetry Book
Hand bound printed book with illustrations and text by Michaela Ikin
Inspired by universal themes of love and loss, this collection of poems by Michaela Ikin represents work from over the last eight years. The culmination of a furtive period of life experience, she uses such sparkling metaphors such as stars, rubies, the ocean and its shining sand, often drawing comparisons between earthly and human nature. Texture, form and an often deliberately awkward meter, create a series of distinct but connected works that aim to delight.
