A handmade book constructed out of an old Atlas of Britain. With twelve examples of the English language’s most lewd poetic form: the limerick.
 
The limerick is grounded in place. There was a young man from Kildare. The original limerick was obscene, bawdy, grounded in taboo. Much like internet porn. The limerick is quintessentially English: using humour to mask deep fears and desires.
