Tithonus: 46 minutes in the life of the dawn was commissioned by James Runcie for the 2014 London Literature Festival. The original edition was published for the Festival performance as a 28-page booklet inside an 8-page jacket. The text was set in Gerard Unger’s Gulliver typeface within a purposely awkward, justified column with marginal illustrations. Tithonus was reset in 2016 for Falling Awake, a new collection of Alice Oswald’s verse published Cape Poetry in the UK and W W Norton in the US.

A few of the original limited edition of 1,000 are for sale here.
