Otava / Suvi Valli
Cover, design, layout and illustration: Kirsti Maula
Publisher: Otava Publishing Company
The illustrations were made with a sewing machine, inspired by the water elements in the poems.
Shortlisted at the Dancing Bear Poetry Prize 2012.
The graphic design and illustration of Kirsti Maula are supporting the thematics of strings and coils. At one point things are completely on a node. It seems like graphic designers have become second makers of contemporary poetry.
