Meet the Team

POET’S HOUSE PAMPHLETS, AN IMPRINT OF MULFRAN PRESS

We are proud and delighted that, thanks to Leona Medlin, ‘Poet’s House Pamphlets’ has been set up as an imprint of Mulfran Press, Leona’s own publishing house. 


DESIGN AND PRODUCTION

We are thrilled to have been able to work with the artist and designer, Frances Kiernan, who has produced these stunning covers and overall designs to a high specification that matches the quality of the poetry inside. Completing the design team is Oliver Harrison who has worked with us on layout and typography. I also have to mention Dalton Printers, Cardiff, who printed the pamphlets to amazingly high specifications and were a joy to work with.

London based artist/printmaker and designer Frances Kiernan trained as a typographer and designer at Ealing School of Art before gaining an MA in Fine Art from Wimbledon School of Art. Language, landscape and memory inform her work and continue to be a critical area of her research. Her work is held in collections including the V&A Museum, Kensington and Kew Palaces and the Sanskriti Foundation in New Delhi. Frances is a member of Printmakers Council, Richmond Printmakers, and a studio member at Kew Art Studios. www.franceskiernan.co.uk
