Vagabond Press started with the Rare Object Series in July 1999, publishing two small chapbooks of poetry by David Brooks and Nick Riemer. More than a decade later the series is still going strong and has emerged as an iconic publishing venture in Australian poetry, bringing together the key emerging and established Australian poets at the turn into the twenty-first century, and being remarkable for the quality of the work published and the design and production values. Originally based on a combination of the design values of French press Fata Morgana and Neil Astley's beautiful Poetical Histories series, the Rare Objects are remarkable for the cover art produced by Kay Orchison, exquisitely conceived and designed in response to each poet's work. The chapbooks are printed in limited editions of 100 copies, signed and numbered by the author. ...' (Vagabond Press website) Number in series: 1/4

    'A writer questions the architecture of words, struggling to capture his ideas before they are lost; a husband excavating beneath his house becomes mesmerised by silence and disappears in search of solitude; a lighthouse keeper dreams that he is a man dreaming that he is the keeper of a lighthouse.

    'Magnificent in its scope and imagery, David Brooks's mastery of the written word is eclipsed in this thought-provoking collection. Both evocative and experimental, Brooks's stories conjure fragments of memory and time, capturing streetscapes and heartscapes in a mosaic-style splendour.

    'Lyrical and perceptive, brave and illuminating, Napoleon's Roads explores the richness of language and the possibilities of expression, while exemplifying some of the most sophisticated, polished and beautiful contemporary literature in Australia today.' (Publication summary)
