If you’re up for getting your feet wet mudlarking, feeling the grass between your toes or strapping on your walking boots to scale reimagined mountains, we’ve the perfect accompaniment for your rambling with some of Penned in the Margins’ most unique titles at 40% discount. Naturally, you should take a look.

Mount London  eds Tom Chivers & Martin Kratz

Was £12.99   Now £7.79

This ingenious book marks the ascent of ‘Mount London’ by a team of writers and urban cartographers, each scaling a smaller hill within the city – from Crystal Palace (112m) to Primrose Hill (78m) – or embarking on expeditions to the city’s artificial mountains like The Shard (306m) and the chimneys of Battersea Power Station (103m). A compelling hardback collection of essays and stories unpeels London’s history and geography, reimagining the city as mountainous terrain and exploring what it’s like to move through the urban landscape.

 

Shad Thames, Broken Wharf  by Chris McCabe

Was £9.50   Now £5.70

Selected as one of ‘The most beautiful books in the land’ by Time Out, Shad Thames, Broken Wharf is a play of voices that spans centuries of changes across the Docklands, allowing past ghosts to be heard above the white noise of the polemical present. Utterly distinctive, each copy is signed, numbered and hand-printed, and contains a unique object (or objects) mudlarked from the shore of the Thames. More proof of Chris McCabe’s enduring experimentalism.

 

Soil  by Tim Cresswell

Was £8.99   Now £5.39

Geography and language collide in Soil, the debut collection of poetry by Tim Cresswell, where poems are often situated at the cusp of the natural and urban worlds, in the hinterlands of airport lounges, urban parks and muddy verges of rivers. Ahead of the publication of his second collection, Fence (Winter 2015), this is a great chance to get your hands on a striking debut – rich, multi-layered, full of organic life and the compacted detritus of the city.
