Calling artists from the West Midlands:
Heaventree is looking for artwork to go on the covers of nine books to be published in 2007. The titles include Bluebeard's Wives, no longer poetry: new romanian poetry, and Forbidden Fruit: The Literature of Inter-Racial Love and Sex. More details of the books (including page dimensions) can be found here. We prefer artwork that is abstract and based on photography, but are happy to consider anything that responds to the title and blurb of each book.
I have to add the announcement written by the English publisher fot the Romanian poetry selected for the anthology:
NO LONGER POETRY:
NEW ROMANIAN POETRY
David Morley & Leonard-Daniel Aldea (editors)
The shocking, avant-garde work of twelve young poets has been translated and collected in this bilingual anthology, the first to give a platform to a rising generation of poets of the post-Communist era. The sole criterion for selection has been the extent to which these newcomers have distanced themselves from the poets of the previous generations: how they have dared to use new devices or apply new theoretical approaches to poetry in the new Romania.
