Crowfinger – SJ Fowler and Bård Torgersen

The boldest take on photopoetry and corvids of the last decade, Crowfinger is a book that offers more than meets the eye. Juxtaposing Torgersen’s candid and striking photographs of Norwegian forests with Fowler’s precise and unrelenting poetry, it comes at you like evening fog between the trees. The poems see you before you see them, and unless you’re careful they’ll lure you off the path. It is lucky then that Crowfinger is here to guide you home. Because you may not know Crowfinger, but Crowfinger sure knows you.

“This is menacing and funny and antic and accusatory and gorgeous and just the best kind of collaboration. It gives us a new way into ekphrasis and a new maze to lose ourselves in. Were you having beautiful thoughts in the beautiful place? Can you just be f*cking honest for once in your life?”
Luke Kennard, poet

“The only thing I could compare this book to is going for a run in the forest in the middle of the night. Surrounded by pitch black you hurtle yourself into a little pocket of light whilst trying your best to ignore whatever it is that’s watching you from the shadows. I’m not sure if I read the book or the book read me.”
Mikael Buck, photographer

The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a
bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.

Once there was a seal who wanted to become famous having lots of amazing adventures, but fame wasn’t all that great. All the flashing lights annoyed him and he had no peace and quiet. So he decided to escape to the bottom of the sea……

Sohana Low is a 7 year old inventor, her favourite food is popcorn. Her latest invention is a robot that fires sweets. She is the great, great, great, great, great, grand daughter of Sampson Low. She wrote ‘Sammy The Seal’ after seeing the real life Sammy in Weymouth on holiday. She is writing ‘Sammy goes to the city’ which will be a touch, feel and sniff book. Please buy this book if you can because the money will go to charity and some will go to the publisher who spent his own money to make this into a book for everyone to enjoy.
