A collection of 75 poems creating art on the page.


Each poem is assigned a colour and ordered within the book to create a transition from green, through the spectrum of colours and back to green to represent the title, The Evergreen.


The uncoated paper, pastel backdrops and minimal photography (taken by the author) compliment the magic of the text to highlight and illustrate each words meaning. The cover shown is the original (unchosen) concept, embossed into an uncoated pale green boxboard with an inset image in the centre.
