There will be an accompanying exhibition, where the art and poetry will be able to be seen (and purchased!). The exhibition will open to the public at the museum on the 18th May 2021 until 17th July 2021.

They have priced the collection so that the books remain accessible to everyone, including those on low incomes. Available to purchase online here:
