Traverse Poetry Trading Cards
A new way to collect poetry. Put A Poet In Your Pocket.
Traverse are small packs of 3 randomly selected cards from a series of 21 poems and poets. A mixture of brand new poems from contemporary poets including Mimi Khalvati, Pascale Petit, Susan Wicks and Ian McMillan, and poetry gems from long loved poets such as William Blake, John Keats, Shakespeare, Edna St Vincent Millay and Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
Collect them all!
Traverse cards are beautifully produced including hand-finishes and foils and each one has a collectible value from Plentiful and Mid_rare to Rare and Super_rare. The Super_rare card has a video chip inside that takes the owner (via a smart phone) to a video of David Constantine reading William Blake’s poem ‘A Divine Image’. And if you get the same card twice pass it on to someone you think might love poetry too or find a friend to swap it with.
