Pick me up


Pick me up is the result of a creative collaboration between poet Anna Kiernan and illustrator Harriet Lee-Merrion. The result is an elegant chapbook with decorative endpapers which encase their shared visions of unrequited love, ruins and dereliction, a firstborn son, and a variety of other themes.
