Indifferent Cresses
Indifferent Cresses is a book of pressings, poems and pockets, taking its title from Hannah More’s (1745–1833) complaint that women’s writing has long been dismissed as unwitting, the product of overnight accident or someone else’s good gardening and garnering as much praise as a salad. Commissioned in partnership with Trust New Art as part of the National Trust’s Women and Power programme, this bright and strange herbarium of various ‘cresses’ – from the Hairy Bittercress to the haunting scream of the Wood Ear – is the culmination of Holly Corfield-Carr's residency in the Tyntesfield plantation and records all the brilliance and violence of spring, inviting the reader to add to the compost and make the book their own.

Gold foiled cover on Colourplan Purple with leather embossing, text pages french folded on Cyclus Offset with 1 Pantone spot colour. Printed by Taylor Brothers Ltd Bristol. Awarded 'Best Brochure' in the Antalis Review 2018.
