– not books, not cards, not posters, but something of all three.
A new CBe thing, September 2017.

: two books – a diptych – by Jack Robinson: An Overcoat and Robinson 

Lara Pawson, This Is the Place to Be, shortlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize, the PEN Ackerley Prize and the Bread & Roses Award; Diane Williams, Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine, Fine shortlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Prize; Will Eaves, The Inevitable Gift Shop shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award.

CB editions publishes short fiction, poetry, translations
and other work which, as the Guardian noted, ‘might
otherwise fall through the cracks between the big publishers’.
