Legislators Try to Revive Voter ID

  • January 13, 2020

by Jackie Morris, syndicated from dumbofeather.com in the Daily Good

It has been described as a ‘cultural phenomenon’ by The Guardian, but really it is just a book of spell-poems and paintings. Created as a response to the realisation that we humans were losing sight of the common species, the everyday names of wild things that share our earth, the book’s aim was to re-connect, re-focus, revitalise.
