New Crater

Crater 3; Acacia Feelings: The Collected Poems of Pao Ling-hui, from North
by Harry Gilonis, is now available for order. It contains 7 of HG's
faithless translations, letterpressed and hand bound in a
run of 170, available for £5 UK £6 outlands, p&p included.
Confusing folding; no paperknife required. Here's the blab on PLh:

Pao Ling-hui was an early Sung dynasty poet. Younger sister of the male poet
Pao Chao, she probably died circa 464 AD. 200 of his poems survive; her
surviving 7 are collected in the later anthology New Songs from a Jade
Terrace. Her works based on precursor poems have attracted particular praise.

Paypal, cheques and swapsies welcome. Great late Christmas present for poetry
loved ones; fantastic gauze stocking filler for a court lady or a servant who
complains. Email me for one.

Merry Christmas to all!
