clouds in another’s blood

SpeedPoets this Saturday (May 5) is shaping up to be one hell of a gig, with a feature set from one of its founding members, Rowan Donovan and a premiere reading by Nathan Shepherdson of his latest work, clouds in another’s blood.

clouds in another’s blood is published in a limited edition of 50 hand bound, concertina fold, artist books by local publisher, light-trap press and is a collaboration between Nathan and print maker, Julie Barratt. Nathan’s work has won many, many awards and I for one am incredibly excited about getting my hands on a copy of this new collection. Here’s a few words and images from the book to give you all a first taste…

and the ground

that is responsible

for this distance

is unable to remember trees

is held

under the clean pressure of snow

    this is a wonderful partnership project and Nathan’s work is fantastic.
    light-trap launched this series in 2008 with the collaborative project – ‘holding Job’s hand’, – poems by me and artist cover by the divine Clyde McGill. Risky and edgy publishing, light-trap deserve considerable support and praise for such innovative poetry and art publication.
