Review; Nocturnal by Lindsay O'Connell/Wilderpoetry
Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC through Netgalley of the poetry collection Nocturnal by Lindsay O'Connell/Wilderpoetry and today I'll post my review.
Description from Goodreads
The poems of Nocturnal—newly revised and expanded—are constellations to guide those on a journey of healing and self-discovery, no matter how dark the night.
From @wilderpoetry comes a heavily expanded revised edition of Nocturnal, a collection of poetry and beautifully illustrated black-and-white imagery inspired by darkened days and sleepless nights. Poetry meets presentation in each of the four sections ("Dusk," "Northern Lights," "Howl," "Lucid Dreams,"), which trace the author's continuing journey of self-discovery while illuminating a path for others along the way. Ink stains, landscapes, dreamlike animals, blackened pages, and textured spreads create a multifaceted reading experience. And true to the moniker, these poems are linked by a motif of "the wild." Celebrating the art of self-love poetry with both word and image, Nocturnal will leave readers comforted, curious, and inspired to explore the world around them.
My Thoughts on the Book
Nocturnal is a touching and at times heartbreaking poetry collection with beautiful illustrations. I honestly fell in love with it. It's certainly one of my new favourite poetry collections.
