Verse Potcakes For Sale

LUPO contributor Robin Helweg-Larsen is editing a series of illustrated  pocket-sized ‘Potcake Chapbooks’ for the publisher Sampson Low. The first two, Tourists and Cannibals and Rogues and Roses were published in October and of the thirteen writers whose work is  included, all but three are familiar from their appearances in LUPO.

Robin Helweg-Larsen writes: “These chapbooks are made from a single large sheet of high quality bond paper printed both sides in colour, folded four times, cut and stapled. This gives a 16-page booklet, with enough space for a dozen poems and some illustrations by Alban Low. The poems can’t be too long in a format like this, and light-heartedness is well served by rhythm and rhyme. The chapbooks are designed to be the sort of enjoyable, witty, interruptable collection that serves well on a journey or as a little gift at the price of a fancy greeting card.”
