Calleja’s previous poetry collection, Pomegranate Heart, was published in a very limited edition by Ede Books in 2015, and its heady blend of confessional angst and sensuality has become a staple of local poetry readings and open mic sessions ever since. The collection’s popularity among a small but dedicated readership led to the printing of a second edition this year. 

Each word in Inside Skin denotes the separate volume of the two-part series

With Inside Skin – each word denotes the separate volume of the two-part series – Calleja will present 30 poems alongside an equal number of nude photographs, hand-printed using the lith process by Zvezdan Reljic, with each edition of the book containing 136 pages. Each poem and print will carry its own cover page.

Ede books was formed by Zvezdan Reljic and David Pisani as a result of their shared passion for books and printing processes. The opportunity to put a project in book form arose with David Pisani’s TRANSIT project, which was the catalyst to form Ede Books. With an unapologetic love for Japanese photobooks and graphic design and a tendency to search for photographers, artists and writers working on the fringe of society, Ede Books aspires above all to produce quality books of meaningful and contemporary visual and editorial content.
