Over The Skin – Carole Bulewski

Dementia – Natalie Low

9781910578186_Dementia_Natalie_LowA challenging and emotive A6 chapbook that explores the subject of Dementia. Its narrative flows through notes and lists between a mother and daughter. The book captures a moment in time where love and confusion are both protagonists in the drama of our lives.

“It is not often you write a note to someone to tell them what they have done. A selection of my mum’s notes to and from me, lists for herself, objects and paper, collected in the winter of 2015.”
Natalie Low, November 2015.

The chapbook is full of colour plates documenting many of the notes and lists themselves.

Natalie Low is not a writer, but she enjoys putting words on paper and believes that everyone has a book of some sort inside them. She lives in Twickenham, UK with her rather charming family.

Ten poems with eight lines – Giovanni Cerbiatto

50%_Page_1a copy“The world is never experienced as something which is believed, anymore than it is guaranteed by knowledge. What is needed, if this question comes up at all, is that we experience our existence in its most elementary consititution of being, as being in the world.” Giovanni Cerbiatto.

The first ever English translations of Giovanni Cerbiatto’s simple and complete poems. Little is known about this living poet from Umbria, Italy, whose work barely infiltrates the world of the internet.

This Sampson Low Chapbook is beautifully illustrated by London artist Alban Low. Best known for his work on the London Jazz scene, he shows us a quieter and more contemplative side that reflects the stillness of Cerbiatto’s poems.

Ten poems with eight lines is the second in Sampson Low’s chapbook series.

5 star REVIEW from Mastabrowza
A breviloquent reasure
It’s small. It’s perfectly formed (in a bespoke, artisan style) and it’s like a compact “On The Road” (but with fewer words and many more pictures – so, in fact, not much like “On The Road” at all – apart from in spirit). So, despite – or perhaps because of – that, it’s a fantastic, petite (and very concise) “must have” item. Small on the outside and not quite as small on the inside.
