So, Saturday: A gorgeously warm day, spent in a myriad of beautiful books, copious amounts of coffee, inspiring conversation and endless enthusiasm. Hello, hello Poetry Book Fair! A curious, cosy, and successful day spent indulging in our love of poetry. Was it a vision of the afterlife? We hope so! Poetry everywhere - rejuvenating the senses - a hall flooded with exclamation marks and questions and of course, temptation, temptation, temptation!
We had a great response to our new books and some of our backlist titles, managing to sell over sixty books! Not that we mean to blow our own trumpet or anything.
It was great to chat with the lovely Nadia Kingsley at Fair Acre Press and to get the chance to hang out with the energetic team at StoneWood Press. Thanks to everyone who came along. We hope the outcome has led to some serious poetry reading in bed. The team at Arc had a fantastic time and we hope you did too.
