The Book of Hours is a contemporary re-imagining of a medieval book of hours. These were collections of exquisitely hand-illustrated religious readings and accompanying images. They were created in a handy size so they could be carried by the owner and read on a daily basis. This book of hours is secular but the general mood is contemplative and reflective. The poems can be read individually or as a story of growth and change throughout a year. The project is a combination of a collection of written poems and a film poem project, where each of the poems was made into a poetry film in collaboration with international filmmakers, which resulted in a website where the poetry films can be viewed by the public.

This item represents one of the central research output components, The Book of Hours website, which contains the 'calendar of poetry films' produced as part of this project.
