Chapbook Series Book One 



Collection of eighteen poems considering such everyday tragedies as addiction, loneliness, love, and bottled water from Lumpen editor Dorothy Spencer, alongside illustrations by Dylan Hall.


This is the first book in our chapbook series. As we've made links with so many good poets over the last year we decided to dedicate some of our time to publishing them. 80% of profits go to the author. 

what is a chapbook you say? A chapbook is a small publication of up to about 40 pages of ballads, tales and poetry. In early modern Europe a chapbook was a type of printed street literature sold by pedlars! basically we are paying tribute to some of the earliest fanzines and fanning on our poets at the same time!
