Forty six publications, with some early editions, representing over 40 years of publishing by Thomas A Clark and Laurie Clark from Moschatel Press and others, documenting a period where they were at their most prolific. These small printed items may be arranged to evoke the details and atmosphere of a landscape. As Thomas A Clark puts it: ‘Poetry is an art of condensation, folding whole landscapes and discourses into a verse or a line, to be unfolded later by the reader. Designed for a jacket pocket, or for a table or mantelpiece, rather than the bookshelf, often holding only a phrase or an image, you can open the box and unfold a range of landscapes, trees, hills, orchards, rivers’.
