60 Years in 60 Poems is an interactive HTML5-based multimedia platform that creates an audio and visual representation of British poet and playwright, Carol Ann Duffy’s, book, Jubilee Lines. As a celebration of the Queen’s 60-year reign, the site showcases 60 poems: one for each of the years the Queen has ruled.
