Heather Scragg – The Poems of Heather Scragg

First published by John Tungay’s Pentagraph Press in 1995, under the title ‘Hooks’, the eleven poems in this now reprinted and republished edition are a testament to the visionary work of poet and artist, Heather Scragg. This superb collection, reproduced from all that remains of otherwise carefully preserved manuscripts, are a small, but significant poetic legacy from a woman whom John himself describes as: “... a deeply sensitive and devastatingly honest human being...”  £3.50


Phil Knight – Dylanation

A new collection of poetry from this talented and well-established writer. Based in South Wales, Phil Knight has enjoyed considerable success as a poet for a number of years. Dylanation is not only a ‘celebration’ of Dylan Thomas, in the centenary year of his birth, but also demonstrates Phil Knight’s well-known idiosyncratic sense of humour, along with his equally  delightful mischievous use of irony, satire and nostalgia. The fourteen new poems in this collection are written with passion and wit and above all, with a refreshing sense of honesty, not only for the title’s subject, but also for the creative use of poetic language.  £4.00

Leonard O’Toole – Loss, Hope, Love and Life

The writing of poetry is often considered to be a cathartic experience and this is most certainly the case with the majority of the fifty poems that make up this first edition. These are poems written from the heart, with passion and above all, with a refreshing honesty, conveying perfectly the sentiment of their four themes: Loss, Hope, Love and Life. The illustrations which accompany each poem have been carefully chosen to complement the text. Therefore, they combine to produce that which good poetry should always be ... something which can touch us, move us and realise the validity of writing from experience and about experiences, be they painful or enjoyable. £7.50
