Mud Press’s first release is a collection of poems – some heartbreaking, some revealing, some creepy. All tied together under the theme of ‘Hunger’. The book serves as a visual feast as well as a literary one, featuring a number of cropped, black and white photographs of the poets that are interspersed throughout their work.
Towards the back of the book, the reader is treated to a look ‘Inside The Poem’. The poets have provided unique and varied insights into the conception, motivation and editing of their pieces – both literal and abstract.
Printed on a heavyweight 120gsm paper, the book takes on the look and physical feel of a magazine such as ‘Firewords’ or ‘Boneshaker’, but holds the carefully curated literary pedigree of an anthology.
Everyone has felt hunger, lust, desire – now Mud Press offers the chance to explore it with this tactile combination of words and images.
