No Distance Between Us

by Marianne Peel

NDBU is an illustrated collection of poetry written by Marianne Peel and published by Shadeland House Modern Press in October 2021.

This emotional collection of poems takes the reader through a journey to different refugee communities and sharing experiences through incredibly detailed anecdotes.

I saw an opportunity to fragment the interior illustrations, which are later revealed as parts of one larger image on the last page. The intent was to convey feelings of belonging and togetherness, illustrated by pieces scattered throughout the book that relate to certain poems, only to become whole at last.
