The Dereliction: poems and photographs from Liz Berry and Tom Hicks

The Dereliction is a love letter to the Black Country. Liz Berry’s poems have been praised for their use of the vernacular, the twang of West Midlands. Her words are matched with Tom Hicks’s stunning photographs, part of his ongoing documentary photography project Black Country Type, depicting colours and textures of the post-industrial landscape. Together, their vision is a celebration of place, which is as vital and lyrical as Wordsworth’s celebration of the Lakes. Join us as we discover the poems and photos from The Dereliction, the latest stunning publication from Hercules Editions.
