De luxe edition consisting of 150 slipcased copies. Plan B was bound by The Fine Book Bindery in Dubletta rust-coloured cloth and housed in a slipcase. Paul Muldoon and Norman McBeath signed each numbered copy. Neither merely a poetry collection nor merely a photography book, this collection thereby crosses over genres.
‘Paul Muldoon, who has done so much to reimagine the poet’s task, has surpassed himself with his latest collection. Plan B is an exquisitely produced collaboration with Norman McBeath, the Scottish photographer.“ I sat one evening with the photographs and copies of the poems and, like the kind of party host we’ve all been encouraged to believe ourselves to be, allowed them to get into conversation with each other.” writes Muldoon of his collection, which, he says, was “curated by the poems and photographs themselves”. Typically, he’s given this new genre a distinctive new name: photoetry.’ – Observer
