The Hollow of the Hand
Signed Copy – Exclusive to Booktopia in Australia
The debut book by artist and writer PJ Harvey, in collaboration with film-maker and photographer Seamus Murphy, emerges as a one-of-a-kind collection of poetry and images.
Between 2011 and 2014 PJ Harvey and Seamus Murphy set out on a series of journeys together to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington, D.C.
Harvey collected words, Murphy collected pictures, and together they have created an extraordinary chronicle of our life and times.
The Hollow of the Hand marks the first publication of Harvey’s powerful poetry, in conversation with Murphy’s indelible images.
