A Discoverie of Witches

Blake Morrison’s A Discoverie of Witches is a limited edition clothbound hardcover book with just one hundred copies produced.

Lancaster Assizes, 1612. Ten people from Pendle in Lancashire were hanged, pronounced guilty of the crime of witchcraft. The poems in this collection give voice to characters involved in the trials: from the accused to the accusers, from a child who bore witness against her own mother to the hangman who carried out his job loyally and efficiently, yet not without stirrings of compassion. Also included are several poems set in the Pennine countryside where Blake grew up, as well as the controversial tour-de-force ‘The Ballad of the Yorkshire Ripper’.

Each book is stamped with silver foil onto a quality dark grey cloth and is wrapped with a striking transfilm half jacket and has been signed and numbered by the author.

The interior is printed on 100gsm Premium Munken Cream paper giving a wonderful feel and excellent readability to a superb collection of poetry.

The poems are complemented by a half hour interview with the author on a DVD filmed early in 2012 and presented in full exclusively with this edition.

Published by Litfest and Smith Doorstop.

Buying the book here priced at £39.99 plus £3.00 postage is the best way to support Litfest. We hope you enjoy the book.




A hardback trade edition in green cloth without the DVD is also available priced £12.99 plus postage.
