An inspiring anthology to keep you company for every night of your life
Allie Esiri, described in a Tatler profile as 'a poetry
powerhouse', is a former English stage, film and television
actress, now a writer. Her iF Poems app was launched to great
acclaim and was the Apple Editors' Choice All Time Favourite app.
iF: A Treasury of Poems for Almost Every Possibility was
published in 2012 and The Love Book in 2014. Her poetry
compilations A Poem for Every Day of the Year and A Poem
for Every Night of the Year were best books of the year in
The Times, The New Statesman and The Observer.
She has hosted poetry events at The Times and the Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, The Sunday Times Festival of Education and The Oldie Soho Literary Festival.
Zanna Goldhawk creates her illustrations from her seaside cottage in Cornwall. She takes huge inspiration from nature and animals, and has a mild obsession with colour and pattern (and coffee). Zanna studied illustration at the University of Gloucestershire, where she started her illustrated gifts and stationery business Papio Press with her husband. Now she splits her time between designing beautiful products and illustrating gorgeous books.
