AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This volume of multicultural writing contains some 33 short poems, several of which were published during the preceding decade. Arranged under three thematic headings - Reliable Magic, The Process of Separation and Luminous - the poems often feature reflections of a single persona. Youthful memories of family life, marital and unrequited love in the Balkan motherland are recalled and circumscribed by the aftermath of recent civil strife and war.

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: 32/34
