It’s been a long time since I have written anything like a blog. For about fifteen years I wrote a blog about books and design called Front Free Endpaper. Life changes and things move on. I still work with books. By day I work in an antiquarian bookshop and by night I fight crime. More accurately I write poetry and do magical things. All of that you can read about me in the lovingly crafted ‘About’ page if you are interested. There are also a number of links beneath the ‘About’ to pieces of writing elsewhere online. This is simply a first post to say welcome to this new venture. Expect magic, poetry, landscape, landscape art and books (maybe): all with a flavour all of my own I hope.
