Cryptic symbols, secret languages, riddles and warnings hidden in plain sight. Look Again is a pocket cipher, full of double meanings and linguistic secret passageways. Carry it with you. Read and re-read it. You won’t want to miss a thing.
The Hipflask Series is an improvised dance of unusual forms and genres, played out across four collaborative, pocket-sized collections. Each book comprises a selection of written works that skirt close to (or cross the border into) poetic composition, revealing the dynamic relationship between poetry and other written forms.
The major theme of each is extrapolated from one or other of these key aspects of modern poetry – play, appropriation, subtext and conflict – but the result is a series that occupies its own strange niche: mutant miscellanies, oddball assortments. Good for a nip or a shot or a long, deep swig.
