I Saw A Peacock With a Fiery Tail
Have you ever heard of a trick poem? What about this one, from the 17th century, called I Saw A Peacock With a Fiery Tail? Depending on the way the poem is read, with what line breaks, it takes on two very different meanings for the reader.
This edition, breathtakingly illustrated by award-winning, central Indian artist Ramsingh Urveti, is also beautifully die cut to create new and intricate designs. Aside from the cleverness and beauty of the poem, this book is also a feast for the eyes. See inside it in my colleague Julie’s video.
