Pages on the Tube

ImageIn the last few months, we’ve printed a few Pages with very slight errors inside that we haven’t wanted to sell. Rather than let them lay to waste, I’ve started leaving them on the underground and on buses and on benches and in cafes for people to read. If you pick one up or see one hanging around, let us know. Streetwords.

We’re going to talk at the New York University in Florence, Italy!

There’s some really exciting news that we’re really excited about. We have been asked to go and speak at an event on ‘The Power of Poetry in Contemporary European Society’ at the New York University’s Centre in Florence, Italy on 7th May. If you’re in Florence, come and say hi and maybe listen to a few words. We are forever indebted to the people who have helped set this up. www.bellevilleparkpages.com

After a short Easter-Egg related delay, Page 19 is released today. Inside are 10 pieces by 10 different authors from all over the world. Here’s pretty-city-boy Pearson, fresh from running the London Marathon last week, flashing an adoring/slightly creepy smile at the Page.

Zelda Chappel’s ‘Icon’ in Page 18

Image

This is exactly the kind of reaction that reading Zelda Chappel’s ‘Icon’ in Page 18 can induce. Quotation – 

“Afterwards the radio refused 
to sing the way it used to
the sun rising silent in the glass
so as not to be noticed
slipping in days right under 
our noses.”

You can have that very same reaction by getting the Page delivered to your door and then reading the words inside it here – http://www.bellevilleparkpages.com/#buy

Sunday Chilling.

Having recently realised that there aren’t really many photos of the Pages ‘open’, it was suggested that some of you might not even know what the hell the inside of the little critters looks like. Here they are, guts splayed out all over the rug back in Wolverhampton. In amongst the guts is Nina Mazodier’s piece ‘Last embrace’ which begins, surreally :

‘This one slender and annoying girl, continuously chewing a dead bird in the coffee shop queue’

Lazing on the Sofa

Image

 

A lazy Thursday morning for the Pages lounging on the sofa contrasted with a busy morning for deliveries and mail. Being able to read through the Page whilst stamping is a more than ample distraction. Here’s a particularly distracting few lines from Alice Ju’s poem ‘Renunciation’: 
‘Do not think I have forgotten how you
spilt monstrous, dripped monsters carried to the 
light-lit fence, light breaking paper tigers
lit not since.’

Page 18 Released

Oh hey, we’ve just turned 18. A big one. And to celebrate, we made the trip over the road to stand outside the permanently lit ‘Kentish Town Kebab’. Page 18 is released today with 12 writers inside. This is the third Page for the month of March 2014. We haven’t had 3 Pages in 1 month since July 2013 – and we definitely weren’t all grown up then. Enough numbers, buy a Page and read some words. http://www.bellevilleparkpages.com/#buy
