Welcome to Hercules Editions
Hercules Editions was founded by poet Tamar Yoseloff and designer and art editor Vici MacDonald in 2012, with the aim of bringing together new poems with visual imagery. Their first publication, Formerly (featuring Tamar’s sonnets in response to Vici’s photographs of liminal London spaces) was hailed by Owen Hatherley as “a direct and quietly urgent dispatch from a familiar but disappearing London”. It was shortlisted for the prestigious Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry.
Since then Hercules Editions has produced Heart Archives by Sue Rose, Ormonde by Hannah Lowe (selected by Colin Grant as one of five essential books on the Windrush generation – see here), Silents by Claire Crowther, Hammersmith by Sean O’Brien, Rubaiyat for the Martyrs of Two Wars by Ruth Valentine, A Bargain with the Light: Poems after Lee Miller by Jacqueline Saphra, The Singing Glacier by Helen Mort, and The Practical Visionary by Chris McCabe and Sophie Herxheimer. The most recent title to be brought out by Hercules Editions, in May 2019, is The Gospel of Trickster by Nancy Charley.
