Your Irish Bookshelf:
W.B. Yeats By Seamus Heaney


Faber & Faber recently published a series of six new hardback editions of twentieth-century poetry (Auden, Eliot, Hughes, Plath, Betjeman, and Yeats), each with a specially commissioned cover, as part of the publishing house's 80th anniversary celebrations. The poetry selections were made by great contemporary poets, and Faber invited a selection of prominent illustrators and printmakers to create the stunning covers and matching endpapers for the series.
Seamus Heaney was invited to make the poetry selections for the W.B. Yeats edition, and Nick Morley created the beautiful lino-cut-style cover design. This would be a beautiful gift for any Yeats, Heaney, Irish poetry, or book fan.
