Shirelands

By Tracey Swain and Hilary Jane Jones

Art & photography, Poetry, Environment & nature, Hybrid & other, Magical realism, Fantasy, General fiction, Picture books & comics | Hardback


Since being given her first camera, Tracey Swain wanted to produce a landscape photographic book set to verse, but as she was unable to find the right wordsmith the idea never came to light. However when she heard Hilary Jane Jones’s poetry at her local bookshop one evening she knew she had found the perfect person to help bring the project to fruition, and Briar Bridge Books was born. ‘Shirelands’ is inspired by some of the loveliest scenery in the world, encompassing South Shropshire and the Welsh Borders, where Tracey and Hilary both live. Each photograph has been carefully and thoughtfully chosen to celebrate the enduring beauty of this area, so often overlooked in the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Each poem brings out the emotions, thoughts or feelings that the individual photograph inspires. Sunrises, sunsets, nature’s seasons, love, loss, hope, fantasy and the joys of childhood ... all are celebrated in this beautiful, collectible book.
