Book collaborations with poet Colin Pink

During 2020, I collaborated with Colin Pink on a second collection, producing 12 woodcuts in response to his poems. The collection was published by Paekakeriki Press in September 2021 as an individually numbered limited edition of 250. They may be ordered direct from the publisher here

The collection hinges around an eponymous epic poem which relates the human cost of a fishing tragedy off Cornwall in 1962. It includes twelve sonnets and ten triolets, reflecting Colin's interest in formal poetic structures, though the subject matter and treatment is anything but. "Love, death, disaster and politics!" is how Colin sometimes summarises his work.

In June 2019 Against the Grain Poetry Press published the book of poems and woodcuts on which Colin Pink and I collaborated. The collection is entitled The Ventriloquist Dummy’s Lament and consists of 21 of Colin’s poems, each accompanied by one of my woodcuts. These in turn inspired a series of paintings also shown here.

You can order the collection direct from me, Colin Pink or Against the Grain Poetry Press priced at £10.00 plus postage and packing. To purchase from me simply choose the book cover from the images below and proceed via PayPal as with other purchases from this site.
