Alice and Antius is a narrative poem following the lives of two lovers—a scientist and a poet--through a climate apocalypse. Survivors of a lost time, they enter a labyrinth filled with the haze of nostalgia, loss, meaning, and hope.
At turns mythic and intimate, wry and lyrical, Alice and Antius show us the power of words to trace our path across the shadow of ruin.
This book is a unique artwork for your collection of beautiful reading material. There are more carefully considered details than you can possibly take in all at once. This meld of word and image will offer you new meaning every time you revisit it. Remember to be kind to yourself. This story is timely and hard to bear at times, but so worthwhile.
'Alice and Antius, written by Kit Ingram and illustrated by Brianna Tosswill, is a poignant piece of art that is irrefutably beautifully staged. Ingram and Tosswill showcase the reality of our current climate crisis with mythological language, ethos, and characters from Ancient Greece.' - Independent Book Review
