posted on 2020-01-07, 16:59 authored by Caroline Harris

SCRUB investigates, through poetic practice, the relationship between humans, language and ‘scrub’ plants and ecologies.

The limited edition ‘SCRUB management handbook no.1 Mere’ artist’s bookwork was created during a residency with Singing Apple Press in Mere, Wiltshire, in June and August 2018. It takes the form of an A5 dos-à-dos handbound pamphlet in a letterpressed belly band, with a 16-page poetry pamphlet on one side and seeds from the Singing Apple Press garden enclosed in a fold-out poem on the other. A one-off cyanotype photogram print forms the cover, while the poetry includes three QR codes that take readers to videos made during the residency (hosted on Vimeo with limited sharing).

This item contains the proposal submitted in response to the Singing Apple Press call for language artists/poets, photography showing stages in creating the artist’s bookwork.

The artist’s bookwork is published by Singing Apple Press and in copyright. A copy is now held by the Bodleian Library, and a copy of both bookwork formats is held in the National Poetry Library archive.
