AN EPIC POEM BY NICK MOORE
WOOD-ENGRAVINGS BY KEITH PETTIT
“So. Send for the shipwright / Summon him hither
The flood-tide is flowing / Deep forces are stirring
I bring a commission / A craft like no other.
A thing never dreamed of: / Thought-Ship, I name her…”
Thought-Ship is the epic tale of a conjured ship steered by a poet’s thoughts, which carries readers on a quest through landscapes abundant with images of nature to seek refuge from the Doldrums of the modern world. Written amid the turmoil of current events, and decorated with elegant woodcuts, the poem reminds us that our thoughts are always unconstrained, however deep and dark the ocean beneath us. Thought-Ship is launching on Kickstarter until 15 February 2023. Join our voyage of adventure by pledging to purchase rewards that include a hardback edition, limited edition books and wood-engraved prints, letterpress broadsides, newsletters with updates from the voyage, and the opportunity to join the ranks of thoughtshipful crew and have your name and choice of title inscribed at the back of the book.

Like most children, Miss Moo-Poo has her many different moods. She can be a funny cow, a noisy cow or a just not behaving very well cow! But whatever mood she’s in, Mr Milk-Tom can’t think of anything to tempt her into the milking parlour. New shoes? A hat with stripes or a hat with dots? He loves this naughty cow, but what can he do? With beautiful collage artwork, and two of Miss Moo-Poo’s favourite games to cut out and play, this read-aloud tale will cheer up even the moodiest little moo.

When a poisonous dragon arrives in the land, King Boris and Doom the Magician tell the people to stay at home and lock their doors. But when they see Doom enjoying a picnic at Castle Barmy and hear his many excuses, the children escape to create a land where nature thrives, families spend more time together, and women and children make the rules instead of kings. The perfect bedtime story to start conversations about how we should fight our dragons, Castle Barmy celebrates the joy of family and the inspiration of the natural world.
