Read full description of the books 30 Days:30 DAYS (Time is Now)
An anthology of illustrated poems about science, cosmology and nature. The gold-foiled softcover book contains 30 illustrated poems and scientific notes. Listed as one of the Best Science Books of 2014 by Maria Popova. This is a limited edition print run of 1000.
These illustrated poems were created, one per day, during April 2013, for National Poetry Writing Month, an annual international event. I was reading about cosmology at the time, and as I took my habitual walks across the marshes, I pondered on the dimensions of space and time through which I was passing, as well as existing euphorically in the moment with the first stirrings of spring. The poems followed naturally through, allowing me to weave a pattern of deep emotion through a weft of scientific fact. The illustrations came about from my collection of paper ephemera, and a lot of digital manipulation. Where I have used scientific images, I have credited these.
This beautiful, gold-foiled softcover anthology contains all 30 illustrated poems and includes scientific notes.
Read information about the authorxYz - Quantum Poet
I classify myself as a polymath. Although I come from a literary and artistic family, I took a degree in biological science. The signature X.Y.Z. was a writing pseudonym of my grandfather’s, which I have adopted as my own, but with an emphasis on the Y, to represent the interrogative. I take my inspiration both from the mysteries of the Universe and the old wisdom of the mystics.
Like William Blake, I am compelled to illustrate my work. The illustrations augment the reading, engaging more of the reader’s brain, and revealing the workings of my own mind’s eye. Whilst I cannot offer any new scientific theory, I can offer my own devotional vision of what science has revealed about our awe-inspiring Universe, and hope that my poetry brings fresh wonder to the minds of those who read it.
