I can't believe I now have 12 different designs of poetry postcard - it seems a lot, doesn't it? I started years ago (early 2006 I think) with the first card ('The sisters said it best') and I've just recently had delivery of card designs numbers 11 and 12 (as well as some reprints of previous cards - sparkling new versions of 'Crowded out' and 'Save the trees'). Some of you (especially facebookers) already have copies of the new ones but here is card number 11 (or a suitably murky scan of it anyway):
This poem was part of a blog post not long ago (here) and many of you would have spotted the Joni Mitchell connection even before I mentioned it, right?
Card 12 is this one:
and it started as part of TFE's Monday poem project (back here).
Both cards are now up on the website too and anyone wanting to buy sets of all cards (now £4 per set of 12, incl P & P) can get them there (head to the postcard page at this site). If you want to buy individual cards (a few or in bulk) just email me at the usual address (firstname.lastname@example.org). I am very reasonable...well, unless you park on the school crossing and then I am a total nightmare. All cards are recycled card, as ever.
I haven't got round to stocking up all usual outlets (or looking for new ones...it's been January) but the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh has all 12 designs and it's a nice place to visit anyway.
p.s. Forgot to mention that last week at A Cuban in London's place I did say that anyone who bought a book this week would get a free set of cards too. It's a January special offer, you know.
