This selection of illustrations is from Stuart Henson's poetry book 'Feast of Fools', published by Shoestring press.

Stuart Henson has published four full-length poetry collections, the most recent, 'The Odin Stone', also from Shoestring Press. The 'Feast of Fools' takes us into the world of medieval misericords, re-crafted as a sequence of irreverent poems that explore timeless themes of beauty, treachery, sex, etc.
