The pandemic which erupted in 2020 forced us to change how we interact with our world. It forced us to isolate and distance ourselves. It forced us indoors, behind the windows of our homes. These windows have allowed us to daydream, to process what it means to be apart, to make sense of many unfamiliar feelings.

The experience inspired me to design a book of poetry which captures people’s views during lockdown, literally and metaphorically.

‘Beyond the pane’ brings together 20 poems, from published poets and professional writers to teachers, florists and sculptors with contributions from Nick Asbury, Poppy Collier, Jim K Davies, Lesley Ingram, Christopher James, Elizabeth Facer, Anthony Sprouse, Bronia Sawyer, David Babatunde Wilson, Sophy Bristow, Stephen Meakin, Jessica Shelley, Richard Skinner, Eleanor Rawling, Tom Evans, Scott Perry, Emily Penny, George Cavaney, Rebecca Magnus and Angharad Wynne.

Each contributor was set the brief of writing a poem and supplying a photo of their view through a window which was then illustrated. A selection of 20 poems were chosen and illustrated for the final version.

I was keen to give the book a purpose beyond poetry – it reflects our struggles, anxiety and longing for normality, so I approached Platfform – a mental health charity to see if they’d be interested in endorsing the project. They jumped on board straight away.

All profits from the book will go to platfform.org

The 44 page book is designed with a black and red colour palette and will be printed on GFSmith uncoated papers with emboss detailing to the cover.
