This book is inspired by the crosses used to mark the 1.5 metre distance,  we need to keep apart from another when queuing for goods and services during the pandemic; symbols which have become a part of the urban landscape.  Initially,  I found these marks disturbing, as they evoked thoughts of the plague.  I then became fascinated with them; the placement, colour, size, how they wore over time, and the makeshift quality of these crosses: suggesting it is only temporary although it seems this virus will be with us for some time.
