Poetry Bundle

Felt, On We Go

Johanna Emeney; Jane Sayle and Catherine Bagnall

book cover for Poetry Bundle


Two beautiful poetry books

A remarkable collaboration between an artist and a poet, and a new collection by one of our leading poets.

Praise for Felt
‘Felt gets you thinking about poetry, how the poet canvases multiple experiences whether lived, imagined or felt, and finds the form and voice that suits each poem and herself. . . . Think of the book as a glorious arm-wide regeneration, the poems both stretching and contemplative.’ — Paula Green, Kete

‘One of this collection’s strengths is its ability to give Emeney’s stories room to breathe. The poet and publisher seem to understand where the real heft of the collection lies and how best to accentuate it with a structure the feels not so much like an arc but a parabola, scattering careful, effective bursts of tragedy throughout. Felt is a collection that has left a mark on me and hopefully on the NZ poetry landscape.’ — Jordan Hamel, Landfall Review Online

Praise for On We Go
‘A magical and unique reading experience.’ — Paula Green

‘I love the small size of the book — it fits in one hand. You can carry it in your bag to bring out whenever you need a touch of joy.’ — Vasanti Unka

‘Poetry as a genre sings out for accompanying artwork and the superlative treatment a hardcover book affords, however budget constraints mean that this level of production is rarely to be found outside of limited-edition semi-hand-crafted books. What a joy, then, to discover On We Go’ — Kiri Piahana-Wong, Kete
