A new collection of poetry, prose and wordplay by Four Wordsmen – a quartet of performance poets from Oxfordshire. The pieces vary from the seriously silly to the perilously profound, all visually enhanced by Adrian Lancini's ingenious page designs and typographic wit. May contain Toucans.
A FUNNY WAY WITH WORDS

‘Funny humorous’, or ‘Funny peculiar’? There are elements of both in this book, unified by the quartet’s playful approach to words and the creative page designs.
Most of the poems and stories started life as performance pieces, and this is how the four authors met. Now, with the input of graphic designer Adrian Lancini (who also contributes verse and prose) their work takes on a strikingly visual dimension.
