NEXT PRINTING: He Used Thought as a Wife. An Anthology of Poems And Conversations (From Inside)


He Used Thought as a Wife. An Anthology of Poems And Conversations (From Inside). 2nd Edition. By Tim Key. 


The second print run has now sold out, so we have ordered more books! The paper is very beautiful (Made by Fabriano) and takes a little while to be made. So this next batch is due to be ready at the end of March. We have ordered a lot of copies this time. But, frankly, we thought that last time, and were amazed at the uptake (& delighted by the very kind feed back.) The author put it very well when he said of the book "it kind of has a life of it's own now." 


In March, Tim Key got locked down, found an orange pen and started writing poems. Then he started writing down his conversations. Zoom, phone, yelled heart-to-hearts from kitchen window to pavement. This book is the result. A paperback account of one man’s experience of the most peculiar moment in our recent history. We are incredibly proud of it and are over the moon it is in peoples' hands.


Buying now secures your copy of this sell out book. Production is due for completion at the end of March. Our book is dispatched either from our studio or via a distribution company. The book's release has been a very exciting time - thank you for your order!

"A latter-day Samuel Pepys, chronicling the modern bubonic plague for posterity... a hilarious portrait of an artist just about creatively keeping his funk at bay" i
