Discover the joy of making a finely crafted book.
Sometimes there is really a Christmas in July. That's what I thought when my copy of Graham Kershaw's beautifully crafted poetry book, Dark Diamonds, arrived in the mail.
The book was printed on an Arab treadle platen press and hand-bound in an edition of 150.
Many of the poems featured in the book were written by some of Western Australian best known and finest poets. Their poetry bears the stamp of the wild Southern Ocean which beats up upon our southern shores.
The wonderful illustrations in the book are by Alison Kershaw and printed on the Arab from etched copper plates.
