clouds in another’s blood – the official launch

Nathan Shepherdson is one of the most innovative poets currently writing in this country and this Saturday (September 8), he (officially) launches his latest collection, clouds in another’s blood at Heiser Gallery, 90 Arthur Street, Fortitude Valley from 2pm.

The book is the second of the light-trap press ‘poetry- in-print series’ of signed limited edition, collectable books of original artwork combined with new poetry.

There are only 40 of these handsome volumes in print and after Nathan’s reading at SpeedPoets earlier in the year, there are now only 20 available. So if you want to ensure that you get to take a copy home, you can pre-order now by contacting Kerry from light-trap press at lighttrappress@gmail.com.

Here’s a glimpse of what you would be investing in:

that is responsible
for this distance
is unable to remember trees

What better way to wrap National Poetry Week… See you there!

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…
