ISBN 9780906630631.An edition of 250 copies made at the time of the epidemic lockdown in all of Europe, but where life in our valley was much as it usually is, but with no visitors.

We live in a suspension of the past and of the imagined future, anticipating a time when we can hang up the apron, if only temporarily.

seasonal words

Harry Gilonis


236pp 175 x 125mm offset. 300 copies casebound. ISBN 9780906630648. These versions of Japanese haiku from various writers, translated by the poet, Harry Gilonis were initially sent out as a daily e-mail; initially to a handful of friends, but the number grew and grew. They were not begun with a set plan, nor duration; they went out from 17 September to 24 December; neatly dividing almost exactly into autumn and winter (by Japanese seasonal definitions). Harry Gilonis is a poet, editor, publisher, and critic writing on art, poetry, and music. Since the late 1980s he has written various books of poetry (published by Carcanet Press, among others), and has collaborated with other poets. His writing has been translated into Catalan, Gaelic, German, Polish, and Spanish. In 2018, The Guardian published Gilonis’ piece ‘a small alba’ as its Poem of the Week.
