ANON I, II & III
£5.99 each | 56pp. | November 2017
ANON is a new series that celebrates the work of undervalued women writers, republishing their work alongside commissioned responses from new writers, academics and artists.
Volume one, which launched on 30th November 2017 includes three editions, showcasing the work of Charlotte Mew, Elizabeth Bibesco, and Mary Butts.
These women, who were born at the end of the nineteenth century, enjoyed varying degrees of productivity and recognition in their lifetimes. They had very little in common: Bibesco was an aristocrat while Mew was the daughter of a poor architect. But they all lived through the seismic change brought on by the First World War: the collapse of Victorian social norms, shifts in gender roles, and the disintegration of Britain’s traditional class system. Each writer contributed works of singular originality during the first half of the twentieth century and each has, to some extent, been forgotten.
Each edition is made up of 100 copies, hand-bound and printed using a mixture of letterpress and Risograph, with an acetate cover.

THE DIVERS showcases poems from across Currie’s career, drawing on a wide range of poetic, literary, and academic influences. Currie’s classical background is interwoven throughout her poetry, both explicitly in her translation ‘exercises’, and implicitly in her imagistic and metrical choices. Far from repel a wide readership however, this lends the poems a thematic relevance and timelessness that draws the ancient world onto the contemporary political stage.
