Unknown Languages by Alfie Cooke

£ 5 

Alfie Cooke's last volume of poetry was published back in 1997 by Hangman Books. This second volume has been a long time coming - and possibly the reason for this is that it is not written in any known language!  This is the language of dreams, beyond the surrealism of mere images, these poems are built on the sounds heard inside the subconcious.  

Derelict (voices) - photography by Katherine Cooke

£ 6.00 

There are those that like the look of a good portrait, a smiling baby, maybe the lush green landscapes... Then there are those that don't.  We're none too sure what side of the picket Ms Cooke sits but it is certainly a dark place she's looking into.  This collection of photographs - her first to be published - brings together some of the more sinister aspects of the landscapes we leave behind, each image revealing a story as yet to be heard.


The Disposable Actions of a Purgatory Love by Alfie Cooke

£ 3.99 

When we first began publishing material by Alfie cooke, it was the purely musical world that was our focus - he has written some pretty nifty pieces over the years - and gradually we expanded to include some of his work in other areas - art and religion being among the first few.  But then, more by accident than anything else, we stumbled on some of his 'fiction' writing.  The inverted commas are there for a reason.  When stepping into the world of the imagination, words seem to cease to the things we once knew them to be.  The world of Alfie Cooke is a strange place.  A very strange place.
