The Charm of Magpies was published by Incline Press in 2018. It illustrates the traditional magpie rhyme which foretells the future through how many birds have been spotted. It features 11 two colour linocuts and 2 single colour vignettes. I have included a photo of the front cover here, and a selection of the illustrations. All the colour illustrations can be found in the 'Prints' area. Some of the background colours in the editioned prints differ to the ones in the book. 160 copies were printed and are available from the publisher; see the links page.  


Two for joy

Four for a boy

Five for silver

Seven for a secret never to be told

Ten for a bird you must not miss

Six for gold
