Belleville Park Pages is a publication printed on paper every two weeks, while also publishing various online pieces each month. Edited from London and Paris by James Bird and Will Cox, and currently stocked in 29 bookshops in 9 countries (including Books Upstairs and The Winding Stair in Dublin - as well as Foyles in London, Shakespeare & Co in Paris and City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco among others) each print issue is a hand-folded and hand-packaged creamy A3 broadsheet. Page 30 , published last week, includes my poem 'Consequences'. My thanks to Will for seeking it out for publication. (There are actually four different editions of No. 30, each with a different festive recipe amongst the poetry and short stories from guest chefs from restaurants in Oslo, kitchens in London and home pantries in Ludlow.) You can buy individual copies of Belleville Park Pages  at £3.00, or take out a subscription .

Here's Robert Rauschenberg talking about his 1953 work 'Erased de Kooning Drawing':
