I get bored by the various 'discoveries' of pictures of Shakespeare, as if what he looked like is really that important. However, I am intrigued, and possibly convinced by this latest image, which makes me think we may indeed be seeing that face of the man himself.
I founded Leafe Press in 2000 and am now co-editor. I've edited Litter magazine since 2005. I was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and I live in Nottingham.
My most recent book is "Variations on Painting a Room: Poems 2000-2010" from Skysill Press. I've also published this translation: Yves Bonnefoy, "Début et Fin de la Neige/The Beginning and End of the Snow" (Leafe/Bamboo Books).
