The Tercel Bird features an engaging sequence of poems, full of wry humour and deep feeling. Although the settings wander from Albany to India, Gibraltar and elsewhere, the focus is always on nature, family and relationships.
The book is illustrated with original relief prints by Denmark artist Janine McCrum. It has been printed with a combination of digital and letterpress techniques and hand-bound by Simon Parry and Graham Kershaw.
Based in Albany, Yann teaches at the University of Western Australia and runs community garden projects. His poems have appeared in a number of anthologies & literary journals, and have been broadcast on Radio National’s Poetica. Yann read excerpts from The Tercel Bird at this year’s Denmark Festival of Voice, in company with Lucy Dougan and Virginia Jealous.
