The Tender Map from Guillemot Press Wins the Prestigious Michael Marks Award
The awards are presented by The Wordsworth Trust and The British Library, with this year's panel praising illustrator Ferraby's bold, archaeology-influenced images.
Dr. Luke Thompson, a lecturer in our department, and his fledgling Guillemot Press, have been selected for the prestigious Michael Marks Award for producing an award-winning poetry pamphlet, The Tender Map by Melanie Challenger, illustrated by Rose Ferraby.
Rose Ferraby, illustrator of The Tender Map, won the Michael Marks Award for Illustration, awarded at the British Library last night, and judged by Sir Nicholas Penny.
The Michael Marks Awards is one of the largest group awards for UK Pamphlet Poetry publishers in the UK. The awards are presented by The Wordsworth Trust and The British Library, with the generous support of the Michael Marks Charitable Trust, and in association with the TLS and Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS), in Washington DC and in Nafplio Greece.https://wordsworth.org.uk/poetry/poetrypamphlets.html
