morphine | bone | dream

We are delighted to announce a very special project with our long time collaborator, Nick Allen.

In spring 2021, set against the backdrop of the raging Covid pandemic and a government presiding over 125,000 deaths, Nick became seriously ill, requiring urgent medical attention that would lead to him spending several days in hospital.

morphine | bone | dream is Nick’s story. A story of personal adversity that intertwines with a national crisis. An unflinching account of a life held in balance when nothing could be taken for granted.

Illustrated with photographs by David Coldwell, the book will be available exclusively as a limited edition from the 29 October 2021. All proceeds from sales of the book will go towards NHS charities.
