Poems celebrating the art of rural trades and traditions
From baker, beekeeper and birdwatcher to falconer, farrier and forager, join poet Angus and printmaker Lilly as they explore the British Isles, uncovering and celebrating our crafts and traditions.
This collection of poetry and printmaking aims to capture and celebrate the heritage and craftsmanship of the British Isles. The book comprises of thirty poems with accompanying black and white linocut prints.
In this book, Angus and Lilly draw attention to traditional, artisan crafts of particular importance as many are in danger of becoming ‘extinct’ and there is a fear that, without recognition, aspects of our cultural heritage will disappear. This is a timely celebration of rural lifestyle.
'From the beekeeper to the bird watcher, the verses are packed full of rich imagery that’s wonderful escape from the daily humdrum Each of Angus’s thoughtful poems is accompanied by a charming illustration by Lilly – the perfect combination in print.'
