Thank you to the nearly 80 people who celebrated on Tuesday night the launch of the 2014 Rack Press poets (see earlier posts for details) at the Dragon Hall in Covent Garden.  It was a very enjoyable occasion and there were fine readings from Hazel Frew, William Palmer, Deirdre Shanahan, and Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch.  We hope to have some photographs of the event shortly.  In the meantime here is a Twitpic from the London Review Bookshop who are currently displaying our titles.  There has been some lively Twitter activity prompted by the strange little gentleman in the bottom right hand corner.  We decided he was a prosodic bouncer making sure our poets had not committed any faults of scansion etc.

If you were unable to be at the launch and want to buy copies you can get them from the LRB shop or Five Leaves Bookshop if you are in reach of Nottingham or directly from this blog.

We are keeping open until the end of February our special launch offer of a set of all four pamphlets each signed by the author at £15 instead of £20.  Just use the Paypal button here to order.
