Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Jun 14, 2017

Mike Smith has spent the last 4 years producing an amazing book. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a translation of a magnificent poem from 14th Century Middle English (north west midlands dialect) into modern “standard” English. The book will contain about 18 linocut prints which Mike produced at Curwen plus a further 9 linocut mediaeval manuscript letters.

Mike has been able to achieve this project using the crowdfunding publisher Unbound. He is currently at 71% funded so the book is very close now to becoming reality. If you would like to help Mike publish his book please use link
Irrespective of pledge level, everyone who pledges is mentioned in the book as helping make the book a reality. Once published, pledgers get the unique hard back first edition. The book then is sold into the UK book trade via Penguin Random House – so every pledger becomes famous!
We are thrilled at Curwen to have been able to help Mike achieve such beautiful prints to illustrate his book.
