Behind the beautiful, bucolic cover of women’s poetry book Wild Honey
Paula Green, madwoman, took it upon herself to launch three (3) books this month. The biggie is Wild Honey, a deeply-researched but accessible tribute to women poets in New Zealand. We've a review underway, but for now, let's talk about the cover – the bit that hits you first. It's a painting by artist and writer Sarah Laing, bright and stingingly gorgeous. Somehow, amid the maelstrom, Paula managed to write this piece about how the cover came to be, and how it connects with the pages inside.
