A Bewick Bestiary

A Bewick Bestiary by James Kirkup (1918-2009) has been re-printed by Red Squirrel Press.

"James Kirkup (1918 - 2009) was a prolific poet and translator. His work includes several dozen poetry collections, six volumes of autobiography and over a hundred monographs of original work and translations. He was a skilled writer of haiku and tanka. Red Squirrel are delighted to bring his Bewick Bestiary back into print.

Originally published in 1971 by the Mid Northumberland Arts Group, Ashington, the book brings together original poems by James Kirkup and animal woodcuts by Thomas Bewick."

You can read two poems and order a copy of the book from the publisher's website here.
