Poetry Icon Set

Tools of the trade

Poems and icons share a similar impulse – to reach for the essence of a thing. What one does with words, the other does with strokes and fills. Yet too often the image of poetry is depicted by an iconography of old-fashioned techniques and technology. The Poetry Icon Set is a self-initiated project to better represent the tools used in writing a contemporary poem.
