A well-known folk poem from 17th century England, I Saw a Peacock with a Fiery Tail is a form of trick verse. The poem at first seems nonsensical, but given a break in the middle of each line, its meaning begins to unravel. In this pioneering visual exploration of the original text, Gond tribal artist Ramsingh Urveti and book designer Jonathan Yamakami use art and design in the service of language. Working together, revealing and concealing, they brilliantly mirror the shifting ways in which poetry creates meaning.
