Last Tuesday night I went to the launch of the latest series of Little Windows Press poetry books by publishers Alison Flett and Jill Jones at Howling Owl in Adelaide. The lovely little hand-made books are The Aura of Loss by Yankunytjatjara woman Abi Cobby Eckerman, The Body That Holds by Kathryn Hummel, Mortis & Tenon by Jen Hadfield from the Shetland Isles in Scotland and Notes on The River by Sydney poet Adam Aitken. The books were launched by local poet and academic Jill Jones – who also read some of Adam’s work and Alison who read a selection of her friend Jen’s work. Ali and Kat read their own.
There were a lot of local poets and writerly-types there, all keen to witness the birth of this superb little collection.
