The Seven Secrets Issue

The Rollipoke News, no. 5 is out today. And is jammed and crammed with secrets. I promised secrets to subscribers, and here they are. Enjoy, those of you who subscribe! (If you feel left out would like to subscribe, look at the right-hand column, near the top, for a Rollipoke sign-up.)

Most of the art above is by Clive Hicks-Jenkins. The camellia photo was taken by Mary Beth Kosowski. Thanks to many grand designers and publishers--Mary-Frances Glover Burt, Elizabeth Adams, Marc Jolley, Andrew Wakelin, Pete Crowther. Why these images? Books currently in print.


  1. Oh joy, I am now an official rollipoker! That sign up process was fun!

    1. Haha: enjoy your new status (and all the rollicking rollipoking!)

      Was amusing to have a Swallow and a Monk join in the same hour.

  2. Many of the secrets are very exciting indeed! I want to read all of them.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
