Concoctions and Contrivances by Clive Murphy

I was recently asked by my good friend Clive Murphy to provide a cover picture for his new volume of Ribald Rhymes 'Concoctions and Contrivances'

Clive is an acclaimed social historian and novelist best known for his 'Ordinary Lives' series. You can buy his new volume by cheque via his website and it will be on sale in Foyles soon.

 The cover was drawn to Clives loose specifications and was designed to be a homoerotic take on my own pornographic comic 'Amok' from a few years back. There is a picture from that ans some links to Clives other writings, including a couple of blog posts from the Spitalfields Life blog.

Here also is an extract from the book; one of Clives best ever poems 'A Yorkshire Legend' and it's not even that smutty.

Clives website, 'Concoctions' not on there yet but can be purchased via cheque.
