And Certain Men, Being Maddened By Those Rhymes

Here is a postcard from Tom Pickard to Jeff Nuttall from around 1966. Pickard asks Nuttall to come up to Morden Tower and give a reading. A heady time for Pickard as Basil Bunting's Brigflatts was published the year before and things were cooking in Newcastle upon Tyre. Nuttall was wrapping up the last issues of My Own Mag and working on Bomb Culture, which would be published in 1968.

Pickard to Nuttall - this is the epitome of the British Poetry Revival.
