Commissioned for Doek!‘s fourth issue—World’s Beyond This One (November, 2020)—Katherine Hunter’s illustrations provided the poetry section with her creative interpretation of each poem’s essence. Her unique style brought colour and vigour to each poet’s writing style and helped to make the issue a celebration of lush visuals.
