Fire Work: Last Poems ~ Aileen KellyBook Design, Layout and Typesetting: Cover Design and Illustration, GloriaSMH Press
This book is a collection of the last unpublished poems by AIleen Kelly, who died in 2011. Full of allusion to the Australian landscape and to place, it is a remarkable collection of the late poet’s final works. The cover illustration seeks to represent what is left, after the fires have subsided in the Australian Bush.
The feature image is from one of the rejected concepts that talks of Blake’s Tiger (Tyger) conjured in the domestic hearth.
