'The book of hours' is a contemporary reimagining of a medieval book of hours. These were collections of exquisitely hand-illustrated religious readings. They were created in a handy size so they could be carried by the owner and read on a daily basis. This book of hours is secular, but the general mood is contemplative and reflective. The poems can be read individually or as a story of growth and change throughout a year. These are the poems from the poetry film project of the same name which has been made in collaboration with an international community of filmmakers
