THE RAVEN SITS – a poem by Mark Vernon Thomas, illustrated by Helen Morley of Wigtown Press.

Mark Vernon Thomas is a poet living deep in the Machars, South-west Scotland. He has been published in a number of magazines internationally, is a Federation of (Scottish) Writers 2020 prize winner and is included among the Champions 2020 poets on the Scottish Poetry Library website. He is very fond of cats.

This entirely hand printed artist book (or chapbook) is illustrated with acrylic engravings developed from intuitively made mono-prints and the text is hand printed with moveable metal type, printed on a recently restored Cropper Minerva printing press. The text is printed in black ink on dark blue card as a response to the mysterious opening and closing of the poem and its darkness, which similarly demands close scrutiny.
It is set in 12 and 14pt Baskerville fount on 170gsm deckle edged Zerkall smooth paper, is hand sewn, signed by the poet and artist, and is limited to 50 copies. The internal print measures approximately 76x25cm and is £40 including free UK P&P.

International postage: apologies, but because Etsy cannot calculate multiple items internationally, I will refund any postage you pay that is over the actual cost after shipping it, if you buy more than one. Please message me if you need any further information.
