Brand new chapter for A Shropshire Lad
Delighted to be working with Merlin Unwin Books on a new edition of A Shropshire Lad.
This is a photographic version of A E Housman’s lyrical English poem, with its universal themes of loss, love and the passage of time.
A Shropshire Lad was first published in 1896 and has never been out of print.
Much of it is set in a half-imaginary Shropshire, what Housman called ‘the land of lost content’.
The author died in 1936 and his ashes were buried against the north wall of St Laurence’s Church in Ludlow.
This latest edition of his work features my pictures from across Shropshire, and it has been an absolute joy to be involved in what is a real labour of love.
The book is due out this autumn.
