Poetry Library Special Collections and Artists' Book Open Day

From the first drafts of Joyce's Finnegan's Wake in the magazine Transition (1927) and the beginnings of Philip Larkin's and Simon Armitage's careers in pamphlet form, The Poetry Library collection includes the whole range of poetry publications since 1912. The Library invites you to an open display of posters, pamphlets, artists' books, postcards and magazines from its various collections. With items from early modernism through to the Beat and Concrete movements, take this chance to engage with the underworld of nearly a century of poetry, including works on display from TS Eliot, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Robert Creeley and Sarah Lucas.
