Customers really enjoy these Lautus Press poetry anthologies, and this is their latest - all about trees. This book makes a wonderful gift, especially coupled with one of David Hockney's tree-celebrating posters such as The Arrival of Spring, Midsummer: East Yorkshire or Autumn Trees near Thixendale. Treelines would also make a thoughtful companion to Simon Palmer's beautiful limited edition prints of trees.
Treelines is a collection of over 60 poems by poets as wide ranging as Philip Larkin, John Clare, Gillian Clarke, Alice Oswald, Seamus Heaney, Carol Ann Duffy and Helen Dunmore. And there are beautiful wood engravings by artists including Howard Phipps, Anne Hayward, Anita Klein, Sue Scullard and Miriam Macgregor.
Trees are all around us, taken for granted, marking the seasons, and forming the backdrop to our daily lives. Who hasn't got a favourite tree? Who hasn't planted a tree? Climbed a tree? Sat in the shade of a tree? Who hasn't walked happily through a wood?
‘The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more’
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here are poems about trees, woods and orchards that reflect that wonder. If you love trees, this is for you.
