A Brief History of Trees - BOOK PLUS ALBUM, 'Trees'


Only 1 remaining

Order Lawrence Illsley's award-winning book and new music album, 'Trees' (CD) together.

Lawrence Illsley's book, 'A Brief History of Trees' was one of the three winners of the Live Canon collection competition, 2020, as selected by poet, Glyn Maxwell.

Maxwell described the collection as “brilliantly arboreal in both form and matter, a psychologically acute odyssey through grief and history, with its stanzaic spine sometimes holding firm as a trunk, sometimes scattered and blown into leaves and flowers. Highly original, enticing and profound.”

Folkmaster praised Lawrence's new music album: '"Its simplicity is part of its soothing beauty and the warmth of the emotions... let it enfold you in its branches."

Lawrence Illsley is an award winning poet originally from Cornwall. His first collection Astra and Sebastian (Proverse 2011) was shortlisted for the Proverse Prize. Find him on Instagram @abriefhistoryoftrees or on twitter @Lawrence_poet
