Um Poema Errante / A Wandering Poem

Um Poema Errante / A Wandering Poem is the printed collaboration between travelling poet Christian Marques and visual interpreter Angharad Hengyu Owen.

The text is a bi-disciplinary re-exploration of an eight-month journey across Europe, Asia and the Middle East, covering roughly 11’500 km by land, unearthing one poem a day. Presented in English and Portuguese, the book is a collection of emotional imprints, where poetic free-verse works hand-in-hand with its unique visualisation.

It offers the reader a multi-layered, inner-directed reading experience; a voyage through printed word.
