The Lyric Year 2 editions

Cover of: The Lyric Year | Wilson MacDonald
About the Book

A book of 12 poems, one for each month of the year.

Published in 1952, one thousand of the copies were numbered and autographed by the author.

This volume, like the author's final book (The Angels of the Earth) was printed in the author's own handwritten script. Wilson wrote:

The changes of style in the script of
these poems were made to emphasize the
moods of the months. The shaded script
suggests the sombre days of winter.
The lettering used in August and
November is a symbol of meditation,
while the bolder style of script found
in the other months is symbolic of
their joy.
