About the location guide

A free guide and map with background information on Formerly’s poems and locations, with texts by Tamar Yoseloff and Vici MacDonald.

Map-co-400• Although Formerly’s sonnets were inspired by photos of real places, the poet used the images to conjure up her own alternate reality. To satisfy reader interest, a free leaflet was created to provide factual information about the sites, and how the poems relate to them. Called Off The Map, it contains a then-and-now photo for each of Formerly’s fourteen locations; a text from Tamar Yoseloff on how each image inspired her; and a text from Vici MacDonald about what led her to photograph it. A map is included, enabling readers to visit Formerly’s fast-changing sites themselves.
Off The Map is included free with each copy of Formerly
