20/08/2021: BOOK RELEASE OF RACHEL ADELINE HOLMES' THE BUTTERFLY DREAM
Inspired by the central motif of an amnesiac dancer who discovers she is a doll, and Elijah the toymaker who chokes on his laughter and ascends to heaven, Rachel's stories and artworks explore the metamorphic dream space of forgetting, remembering and becoming. Accompanied by Rachel's skilled artwork.
The book trailer is an animation crafted by Rachel herself, enjoy!

15/07/2021: RE-RELEASE OF BARRY WILSON'S LEPUS. More info here
Lepus,.. A poetry sequence that asks what it is to exist, via a journey of ongoing self-realisation and self-implosion. A rural backdrop and a dark cityscape where reality and fantasy refuse to comply ... instead we get restlessness, fallibility and yearning.

GREAT WORKS / Oscar Mardell. More info here
Great Works consists of thirteen poems, each about a different freezing works in Aotearoa New Zealand. Satirising the colonial-pastoral mythologies through which the local landscape has often been interpreted, the collection gives due attention to an industry which, in spite of its centrality to the nation's economic history, has remained conspicuously absent from its art and literature. Here, as in Batailles, 'the slaughterhouse is linked to religion': Great Works offers a darkly-comic view of sacrifice and slaughter in 'God's Own Country'.
