Postcards are far more personal than fax messages and more lasting than e-mails. They can be collected, pinned to the wall, used as book-marks, beer-mats or greetings cards. BABEL postcards range from the elegiac to the scurrilous and satirical. They include new poems:

  • THE WEATHERCOCK by Michael Croshaw (first publication),
  • DITTY FOR SPOILT YOUTH by Peter Russell (first publication),
  • LAMENT FOR POESY by Peter Russell (first publication),
  • RETURN HOME FROM LONDON by Peter Russell (first publication),
  • two black-and-white portraits of Peter Russell on his 75th birthday,
  • a photograph of the poet's desk
  • BEI ABNEHMENDEM LICHT by Werner Dürrson (from BABEL IX) here in a facsimile of the author's hand,
  • BE UNDISMAYED by Peter Green (from BABEL VII),
  • WHAT IF THIS ROAD by Sheenagh Pugh (from BABEL IX),
  • PEACOCKS by Seán Rafferty (from Salathiel's Song) and
  • PFAUEN by Seán Rafferty (PEACOCKS in German, from BABEL VIII).

Various authors, POSTCARDS, set of 12 different cards (described above)   £ 8

Three black-and-white non-poem postcards have been printed by hand in an edition of only 100 copies. The three texts are quotes from Ruskin: "Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies for instance." "Whereas it has long been known and declared that the poor have no right to the property of the rich, I wish it also to be known and declared that the rich have no right to the property of the poor." & "Industry without art is brutality."
