Signs of Spring AheadSaturday, August 03, 2013
Other signs of spring are little sprigs of daphne spotted around the house. My bedside table is also holding my two new thrifted books - Rupert Brooks and Strange Meetings. It's funny that I should find them both within a week of each other. One, poems sprinkled with wonderful woodcut illustrations and the other, telling the stories of the war poets themselves. The poets have me wondering if it is time to make some more of poet-tea cups.
I have also been looking up the illustrator - Buckland-Wright. It turns out he fought in the WW1 as well and is equally legendary as an illustrator in his own right.
