Nights of Poor Sleep
Rachael Allen & Marie Jacotey

We are delighted to announce the publication of lemon, egg, bread, the long-awaited debut from Laura Elliott. The collection is a series of imagistic poems which read as an attempt to speed-write the still-life image. Drawn out of a process of meditation on and intervention within various still life compositions, the poems explores practices of re-articulation. 
Nights of Poor Sleep is a collaborative publication from poet Rachael Allen and artist Marie Jacotey. The book is an extended series of responses and engagements between the two artists’ work, showing a critical and creative engagement between the interconnected forms and processes of painting and writing poetry.
