"The Foliate Head" is out from Stanza Press in the UK; it is a limited edition collection, so won't be available for as long as either my last or my next poetry book. Here's a peep at some poems and also at some of the green man artwork by Welsh artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins: http://thepalaceat2.blogspot.com/p/the-foliate-head.html
. The book will be available in the US via Amazon, by special order through a bookshop, or by direct order from P. S. Publishing (http://www.pspublishing.co.uk/stanza...ans-1374-p.asp
I'm grateful to publisher Pete Crowther for asking for a manuscript of poems, and also for allowing three friends to create the substance and design of the book. It was a very unusual thing for a publisher to do, and we had a grand time. The words were mine, the pictures Clive's, and the book design was by Welsh designer Andrew Wakelin. I'm so glad that Pete Crowther trusted the triumverate to do a good job. As a result, the book should be a rather rare and unusual item.
The Foliate Head
is composed of three parts: Powers; The Book of Ystwyth
; and The Green World.
Next up: Thaliad
, a post-apocalyptic epic poem in blank verse (Montreal: Phoenicia Publishing, with a pub date of November 1st, 2012.)
