Scenes from The Puppet Oresteia

This is a new project I’ve been working on recently. It’s a chapbook collaboration with New Zealand poet Jack Ross. I found one of his blogs on the Internet whilst looking for something else & liked what I saw, in terms of the imagery and themes he was using. I suggested a collaboration, and he produced this piece he had been working on for a couple of years, based on Aeschylus’ Oresteia. The rest, as they tend to say, is history. Here, below, are images of the front and back cover, and a couple of the 24 illustrations (the book has 44 pages), most of them new. The chapbook will be available soon, & I’ll post details of pricing and how to acquire it…
