Zi-Zi Taah Taah Taah is a collection of poems by Steve Ely, exploring nature and specifically bird life.

Artwork by PR who produces fantastic watercolour images of birdlife.

"The poems arise from and address the plight of the willow tit, one of the country’s fastest declining species of bird. Since 1970, the willow tit’s numbers have declined by 95%. Paradoxically, the post-industrial sites of the North—former colliery and industrial sites, disused railway lines and canals—often provide very good willow tit habitat, and the species still hangs on in reasonable numbers in South Yorkshire.

PR’s elusive watercolours add a moving elegiac dimension to the pamphlet—and intensify Ely’s evocation of a world on the edge of disintegration, of once-familiar nature beginning to pass away."

Staple bound in square format with an apt circle hole in the front cover, reflecting the habits of it's subject.

This pamphlet won the 2018 Michael Marks Award at The British Library for Best Illustrated Pamphlet for it's illustrations.
