Boxed Set of Ten Chapbooks
In October 2008, to coincide with the World Poets' Tour, the Poetry Translation Centre in associated with Enitharmon Press published ten dual-language chapbooks introducing the international poets who took part in our tours in 2005 and 2008.

Dual-language publications are rare enough, but our venture features poetry translated from a unique range of languages: Arabic, Dari, Hindi, Indonesian, Kurdish, Portuguese, Somali, Spanish, Tajik and Urdu.

The book covers and presentation box are beatifully designed by North Kuras of Whitespace Design - responsible for our fabulous website. We are enormously proud of our collection of chapbooks.
Copies of the complete set are only available directly from the PTC. Not many sets are left, so we strongly advise you to buy the collection before they all disappear!
