Presented as part of Bristol Artists Book Event #BABE2019 | In this event, Jeremy will read from his text (including the hidden poem) and will also explore how the design and function of IN RETAIL relates to the artists’ books he produces as Hazard Press.
Jeremy Dixon’s debut poetry collection, IN RETAIL, was published by Arachne Press in February 2019. The poems were inspired by his part-time job in a High Street pharmacy chain.
