This limited edition, riso-printed booklet reflects on the notion of the ‘haptic encounter’ — the permeative force of touch, as much physically as poetically — a subject that is both extremely relevant yet ever more alien. The booklets contents were developed whilst each contributors were experiencing the first ‘lockdown’ period in different countries — The Netherlands, France, Germany, Greece and the UK. It features artistic contributions from Hannah Dawn Henderson, Karolina Rupp, Elena Kostenko, Kees van Leeuwen, Grigoris Rizakis and Tomasz Skibicki, as well as two essays by Yindi Chen and Alexandre Richardeau. It was designed by Hannah Dawn Henderson and Cengiz Mengüç. The booklet can be ordered via N. o. H. website
