Three fantastic poetry collections

I’m very happy to have helped with the cover design for the following fantastic poetry collections published this year:

The Invisible Girl by E.E. Nobbs


“The Invisible Girl is dry-witted, friendly, weird when it wants to be, sure-footed, formal if desired, playful and inventive if not. Elly Nobbs writes like Emily Dickinson on mescalin, and this is about as stunning as a stunning debut could be. You should love it, because it demands that you love it. You won’t be its only suitor; bet you.” Bill Greenwell

Long Reach River by Margaret Beston


“Delicate and echoing in its imagery, and above all humane, Margaret Beston’s poetry is as fluid and graceful as it is searching. In language as quietly urgent as the ‘swollen river rising’ in the haunting title poem, the narratives in Long Reach River probe the shadow world that runs alongside every waking life.” Jane Draycott

Mango Tree by Valerie Morton


“Enigmatic and intoxicating, Valerie Morton’s India is steeped in contrasts. In poems of displacement, discovery, apprehension and enchantment, she weaves memories of enduring love. Mango Tree is a poignant tribute and a sensory delight.” Michelle McGrane
