Faber Poetry Editions


It’s no secret that I like pretty books (see here and here). So I was obviously delighted to find that Faber & Faber has released another beautiful set of hardbacks.  The six poetry books from the Faber Poetry Collection 2010 are:

  • Ariel by Sylvia Plath (cover illustration by Sarah Young)
  • Dart by Alice Oswald (cover illustration by Jonathan Gibbs)
  • Kid by Simon Armitage (cover illustration by Peter Clayton)
  • Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis by Wendy Cope (cover illustration by Ed Kluz)
  • Nil, Nil by Don Paterson (cover illustration by Charles Shearer)
  • The Whitsun Weddings by Philip Larkin (cover illustration by Michael Kirkman)

I just love the specially commissioned hardcover prints that Faber does. They also did an 80th anniversary collection of poetry editions. Find out more here.
