Gerry Cambridge is a poet, essayist and editor with substantial interest in print design and typography as well as a background in natural history photography. His recent publications include The Printed Snow: On Typesetting Poetry (HappenStance Press, 2015); Notes for Lighting a Fire (HappenStance Press, 2012); and Aves (Essence Press, 2007)—a collection of prose poems about wild birds. The TLS, reviewing Notes for Lighting a Fire, wrote: “[Cambridge’s] poetry has something of Robert Frost’s tone and seriousness, but rings with a deeply personal Scottish resonance all its own.” In his early twenties he was one of the youngest ever regular freelancers for the British Reader’s Digest magazine, which then sold 1.5 million copies a month.
