We are delighted to publish the work of oral storyteller, Hugh Lupton, for the second year running. Pamphlet No. 5, TALLY OF SALT, brings together a series of his previously unpublished songs, which trill out folkloric tales of rural England.
“Sing hey for the ticking of clocks / and the steeps and the slopes of the years… / the salt of her blood, the salt of his sweat / and the tally of salt in their tears.”
Illustrated by Josephine Marston
