'Swifts' a handmade concertina with pop-up and cut-out paper engineering. The poem is handprinted over watercolour washes and is contained in a collaged paper cover.

The poem was inspired by my delight in the display of aeronautical acrobatics by swifts flying acrobatically as they feed on airborne insects.

The poem begins...

'There! I say
Look up! Look up now!
High into the azure sky,
above
black darts spin on
sickle-shaped wings
.....'

The blue card cover features a collaged swift and a colourful sticker emulating the sun in the sky.

Limited edition 5.
Size closed 15.2 x 19 x 1 cm.
