Conversations with the Wind

An edition of air mail envelopes, containing one or two of eight poems written by Alice Oswald for The Battle of the Winds, a Cultural Olympiad community theatre piece staged on Weymouth Sands in July 2012 commissioned by Desperate Men and Cirque Bijou. The mail was designed for print with the same ephemeral windblown qualities in mind.
