    Blood salt spring

    Blood Salt Spring is a meditation on where we are – exploring ideas of nation, race and belonging. Much of the collection tackles the isolation and traumas of 2020, but it also looks to find some meaning and makes an attempt to heal the pain and vulnerabilities that were picked and cut open again in the recent cultural shifts and political wars.

  • Elizabeth Barrett Browning

    £7.99

    Elizabeth Barrett Browning

    Elizabeth Barrett Browning was a poet of passion, wit, and conscience. She was also a woman who wrote to speak the truth about everything she knew – and she knew just what it was like to be a thinking woman in a society that wanted women to be weak. The eldest of twelve children, she wrote poetry from the age of eleven, and became a highly successful poet in her lifetime – and very much loved today. She was also a strong advocate for human rights, campaigning to abolish slavery and child labour, and her three-part poem ‘A Curse for a Nation’ is a powerful polemic against the slave trade.

    Enter the water

    A story invested in care – care towards the environment; towards the political realities of recession and the war in Ukraine; towards the dynamic self, the human whose love for swimming becomes synonymous with self-acceptance and survival; and to everyone, managing to manage. Walking along the edges of our troubled current affairs, animated by a spirit of cheerful protest, this book is an offering and an urgent invitation to exit and re-enter our world – and to celebrate our capacity for courage in times of suffering.

    Fox

    An Accordion Book doesn’t open, it unfolds. One side is filled with beautiful watercolour images of an animal: sometimes in motion, sometimes at rest. The other is filled with text – poems, descriptions, invocations – inspired by the same animal.Together they work as spells to summon the animal’s spirit. Jackie Morris has painted them using antique watercolours, some from boxes which hadn’t been opened for over 150 years, woken from their slumber with a single drop of water.Fox and Otter are the first two Accordions in a series that will go on to include Hare, Owl, Hound and Cat among many others.
