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 www.unbound.com/books/sir-gawain
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.
