WITH Poetry Book

Book / Magazine Design

WITH is a collection of poems by Dean Wilson. Inspired by time spent in Withernsea, a seaside town on the Holderness coast.

The collection is presented in a black and white A4 magazine format with photographs by Graham Scott. The concept behind the packaging for this publication is based on a “Lucky Bag”. Synonymous with the 70s, lucky bags were a treat for kids, containing an eclectic mix of sweets and cheap plastic toys. WITH is packaged in a candy stripe paper bag containing a nostalgic, tongue in cheek array of items that will take you back to a golden age of weekends at the seaside and make you smile.

WITH is limited to 300 copies and can be purchased from Wrecking Ball Press.
