Homebound an illustrated poem that reflects on how anxiety and depression interact with relationships. The story explores the mind of Planet, our protagonist who’s seeking a home of her own, and her feelings for Traveller, a cautious explorer who she falls in love with. Prevalent themes are identity, loss of self, and finding equanimity in the doubt and fear that can accompany relationships for those who deal with anxiety, depression, BPD, or rOCD. Despite the heavy subject matter, it’s made up of whimsical pastel coloured illustrations that are light and child-like.

Softcover, perfect-bound, colour.
