we’re very sad to record the passing of James Bell with whom we were pleased to have worked and to publish his pamphlet the just vanished place in 2008 & a full collection fishing for beginners in 2010.
James was co-host of UNCUT poets in Exeter where we met, he was very amiable & a very thoughtful poet. We’re pleased to note that Shearsman have just published a beautiful book On the Royal Road which combines James’ poetry with Hiroshige’s woodblock prints.
this exciting new pamphlet is a surreal, experimental sequence in three distinct poetic movements.
A slippery diving board for the undercurrents of language in a New Stone Age. Michael March

we are now able to despatch to the EU direct from Prague with stock supplied pre VAT changes in July.
Reading these poems has been an emotional and intriguing experience – left with an over-riding feeling of things being just out of reach – and everyday bringing the blank canvas – the slate wiped clean in the hope that this time ‘you might say that’s really beautiful – something out of nothing’. Frank & Stella is a wonderful addition to my shelves. Congratulations to Mark for such powerful and moving work. angela williams
