Backward Running Dinner

A5, four page
Kaye Winwood

Printed menu to accompany Backward Running Dinner, an edible journey through Jim Crace’s The Devil’s Larder featuring an extensive staged setting and readings from Jim Crace himself. Commissioned as part of the 20th anniversary Birmingham Literature Festival.

The cover image mimics the marbled patterns used extensively in old book printing, but is actually based on mould, which featured heavily in the staging of the dinner.

Riso printing by The Holodeck.
