Liverpool-based skate label Lost Art has announced a new collaboration with legendary U.K. poet John Cooper Clarke. The capsule celebrates Clarke’s autobiography I Wanna Be Yours, which was released earlier this month, and features a reworking of his poem “Evidently Chickentown.”

The new lyrics appear throughout the collection, including a shirt, T-shirts and hoodies, while other pieces sport a specially-designed Lost Art graphic featuring Cooper Clarke’s likeness.

To mark the launch of the collection, Lost Art has released a short video showcasing the printing process in Liverpool and a skatetrip to Salford, John Cooper Clarke’s hometown.
