The lovely people at Fine Press Poetry have been in contact concerning the previous post on Simon Armitage’s poems for ‘The Great War: An Elegy’.  They’ve produced a high quality, limited edition, which I think deserves a mention in its own right! 

Considering the Poppy by 
Simon Armitage and Chris Daunt 
Published in October 2014, Considering the Poppy is a letterpress edition of the seven poems written by Simon Armitage for a BBC 2 Culture Show Special ‘The Great War: An Elegy’. The  book includes additional prose by Simon detailing the inspiration for each poem and is illustrated by specially commissioned wood engravings by Chris Daunt who has responded to the text of each poem.
