Robert Sheppard – Avant Garters – poetic hosiery wrapped in gold paper and sealed with wax.
Robert Sheppard doesn’t often design garters nor does he usually compose monostichs. His poetry is selected in History or Sleep (Shearsman Books, 2015) and since then he has published an elegy The Drop (Oystercatcher, 2016), and a book of experimental prose, Unfinish (Veer, 2016). Also a critic, he co-runs the Storm and Golden Sky readings in Liverpool. Forthcoming are his co-created European Union of Imaginary Authors and some Petrarchs.
