The cover



No, your eyes do not deceive you; the only words are on the spine ;-)

This is just the front:


I'd love to see how bookshops react to this. But I won't find out so soon. as I won't be giving the first edition (500 copies, hardcover, 432 pages) to the main bookshops. It will be sold directly and at events, and at only three independent establishments that need your lurve!

Details on the launch(es) will be posted very soon.

Just curious. What significance are the flowers?

And I'm assuming the kris is a reference to Cathay-Kris studio?

What a brilliant cover. The visual poetry is catchy yet critical.

Can't wait to get one.
