REALITY STREET : home


Announcing the 2016 Reality Street Supporter programme

Reality Street announces its final publication programme, which consists of two substantial titles:

Allen Fisher: GRAVITY AS A CONSEQUENCE OF SHAPE

The complete text of Allen Fisher's Gravity as a Consequence of Shape project, which started in 1982 (following the completion of PLACE) and spanned two decades. Although the texts have been published in various locations at various times, this will be the first time they have all been brought together in one definitive edition.

500pp approx, expected retail price £18

Bill Griffiths: COLLECTED POEMS VOL 3 (1992-96)

This will be the third and final volume in our series collecting the poetry of the late Bill Griffiths. Although this covers just the first five years of his residence in Seaham, County Durham, following his move from London, it was an extremely prolific period, during which he produced 24 poetry pamphlets, now hard to obtain. His poetry from the late 1990s onwards was published in substantial editions, still in print or easily obtainable – so we shall be calling a halt here for now.

500pp approx, expected retail price £18

There are two Supporter subscriber options: either book individually for £18 post free, or both together for £35.
