The series is designed by Faber’s Eleanor Crow (based on an original design by Miriam Rosenbloom) and sees six illustrator/printmakers commissioned to produce covers and accompanying patterned endpapers. The selected poems of William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, John Clare, John Keats, Thomas Hardy and Edward Thomas are included in the collection.
A colour palette of soft greens, browns and a blue-grey links the covers in the series together – as does an accent of red in each one. Cover illustrations are by Andy Lovell (John Clare), Melvyn Evans (Thomas Hardy), Angela Harding (John Keats), Neil Bousfield (Edward Thomas), Glenn Tomkinson (William Wordsworth) and Ed Kluz (Samuel Taylor Coleridge).
The Faber Nature Poets series is out now (£10 each). See faber.co.uk
