A Galaxy Of Poems Old And New (published by Longmans, Green and Co, 1962)

There are more than twenty of these fascinating little woodcuts in this book. Some are almost abstract and some naive. It does require a closer look to take in and appreciate the shapes and rhythm within each piece. I have to post some more in the future. I've never come accross Edward Nolan's work before and found no information on the internet but I do hope to see some of his work in the flesh one day - maybe even buy some... Meanwhile this book represents the best 50p I've ever spent.

  1. Yes, I love these too. I have my mothers copy of the anthology and as I child was always fascinated by the small pictures that run throughout the book. I too cannot find Edward Nolan anywhere else sadly
