Modern Poetry for Private People

by joseph ridgwell

Man, all you lit fiends have been given an Easter treat this year, better than any over-priced piece of chocolate egg shit you might get mugged off into purchasing from your local conmarket. Hot on the heels of a series of chapbooks on their Sick Fly imprint, the incomparable Tangerine Press have followed up with another unmissable production. Counterfeit Crank, a one-off never to be repeated chapbook, the first 25 copies of which include a tipped-in signed broadside poem by me. Get in fast with those orders as these will be gone before you can blink. Details on publishing specs and how to order a copy below:
