Postcards from the 7th Floor is a remarkable interdisciplinary collaboration between author and poet Iain Sinclair and visual artist Oona Grimes. The project is centred on Marine Court, a huge and mysterious concrete building overlooking the ocean at St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex. Moving beyond the modernist fantasy of its imposing architecture, the dreams and lost souls swimming around Marine Court start to make themselves known. This collection maps the layered and shifting energies of the area through a combination of mesmerising experimental verse and Grimes' inimitably creative drawings. The publication appears in a specially conceived reversable format, reading as a poetry book from one cover and an artist's book from the other. It features 28 poems and 2 prose pieces by Sinclair and 26 high-fidelity reproductions of Grimes' images. Postcards from the 7th Floor is a limited edition of 1,000 copies.
