The World Record - David Kelly | 03-Jul-12 to 09-Sep-12

During the Southbank Centre's epic Poetry Parnassus in June this year each of the visiting poets from around the world handwrote a poem on handmade paper to create a one-off edition for the Poetry Library collection called The World Record.

If you missed this mass arrival of world poets in June then here's a second chance to experience the festival. Read the poems that the poets handwrote and watch videos of the poets performing.

There is also a video of the incredible sight of the Rain of Poems in which poems by all of the poets were dropped from a helicopter over London's Jubilee Gardens.

The poets have also been photographed by Alexander Kell and captured in the artworks of David Kelly.
