Crow by Ted Hughes

Hardback Collector's Edition
New and Unread

Faber Members brings you one of the most significant poetry collections of the twentieth century, Ted Hughes’s Crow, in a stunning new edition, with cover illustration and endpapers by Leonard Baskin.

First published in 1970, Crow marked a pivotal moment for Ted Hughes’s poetry. Resulting from an invitation from the American artist Leonard Baskin to make a book with him about crows, Hughes looked to history, the natural world and mythology for his inspiration.

The cover pays homage to the original 1970 cover image designed by Baskin. As with all Collectors’ Editions, Crow has been printed on premium wood-free paper using the traditional lithographic method on a small Heidelberg press. Each book is sewn and bound by hand, using a quarter-bound case of real cloth and printed panels front and back.

'English poetry has found a new hero and nobody will be able to read or write verse now without the black shape of Crow falling across the page.' Peter Porter

About the Author:
Ted Hughes (1930–1998) was born in Yorkshire. His first book, The Hawk in the Rain, was published in 1957 by Faber & Faber and was followed by many
volumes of poetry and prose for adults and children. He received the Whitbread Book of the Year for two consecutive years for his last published collections of poetry, Tales from Ovid (1997) and Birthday Letters (1998). He was Poet Laureate from 1984, and in 1998 he was appointed to the Order of Merit.
