Norman Ackroyd Morred Man with signed print (2006)

Kevin Crossley-Holland. Watercolours & Etchings by Norman Ackroyd

Moored Man. Poems of North Norfolk Special de Luxe edition with signed original etching.

Published: London, Enitharmon Editions, 2006

Date: 2006

Moored Man is a shape-changer, passionate and dangerous. In this powerful cycle we see him moulding dykes, sorting gravel, infilling creeks, tricking the unwary, drowning the innocent, howling and dancing, and all the while worrying away at his own contradictory identity and relationship to human beings. This is Kevin Crossley-Holland’s first new collection since The Language of Yes (Enitharmon Press, 1996), and it is a vivid and penetrating enquiry into the dramatic north Norfolk landscape where he now lives. Norman Ackroyd’s evocative etchings and watercolours provide a haunting accompaniment to the poems in this sumptuous edition. The de luxe edition is slipcased and comes with an original etching entitled Overy Marshes by Ackroyd numbered 74/90.
