It's #panthursday 📚

The original Pan Books logo was designed by Mervyn Peake and features the Greek god Pan playing his pan flute. According to Clare Peake, Mervyn's daughter, the publisher offered him either a flat fee of £10 or a royalty of one farthing (1/960 of £1) per book. His good friend Graham Greene advised him that paperback books were to be a passing fad so he opted for the flat fee of £10.

Week 4 of #TheGreatIndianPoetryContest with @onfire_movement 
Prompt: First Kiss
I opened a book at random to try my hand at blackout poetry. This is the first time I have tried this.
Don't ask me what this means I was experimenting okay?
In case you are still here, the book is 'Boy in Darkness' by #mervynpeake #gormenghasttrilogy #gormenghast
For some reason I thought a horror novella would be a good source for a poem about #kisses

Gormenghast Vol. 3
Penguin 1976

Titus Alone has a reputation as the most difficult of the Gormenghast books. 
Bizarre, (and that's saying something given the content of the previous books!) hallucinatory and dreamlike, Titus moves through a world of surreal situations and animalistic characters.

This is a novel of transition and coming of age (Peake intended to write many more of Titus' adventures) and in tone and setting feels very different to the previous two books.

I couldn't split these up so here's Vol. 2 of the Gormenghast trilogy, Gormenghast itself.

Penguin 1974
Cover of course again by the author, with Steerpike looking particularly (and appropriately) terrifying. For me he is one of the greatest anti-heroes in English literature.

1937 Paris Exhibition.
With Europe in political crisis, in the summer of ‘37 Mervyn and Maeve went on a European tour which ended in France at the Paris Exhibition. They saw Calder’s Mercury Fountain, Miro’s The Reaper (Catalan Peasant in Revolt) and Picasso’s Guernica..
.
.
I love to ruminate on them exploring these powerhouse works as well as them walking past the Russian and German pavilions combatively facing one other; flanking the Eiffel Tower. What an incredible time to be travelling through Europe, and in such ‘epic’ times to be ending it by seeing Guernica at the exhibition it was created for seems entirely fitting.
.
Maeve later wrote:
.
‘The city was crowded with visitors, the decorated streets were full of people. The Exhibition was magnificent, noisy and exhausting. It was difficult to find anywhere to stay..we shared a room at the top of a narrow Paris hotel’. .
.
The photo was taken on their summer tour at the Berlin Zoo, Tiergarten. Maeve was 20 and Mervyn 26.
.
I’ve added some images of what they would have seen as well as the route that they took.

Mervyn Peake - writer, artist, poet and illustrator #mervynpeake #illustration #gormenghast
Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast books are, for me, at the pinnacle of fantastic literature. Dense, weird, gothic masterpieces full of some of the most memorable, grotesque characters ever created. 
Titus Groan is Book 1.
The illustration on this Penguin cover shows Fuschia, not Titus just to confuse..
Penguin 1977
Cover (and many internal illustrations) by the author.

Completed collection of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast Trilogy. I've always liked Peake's original illustrations, but I'm partial to this late 60s Ballantine Books paperback edition featuring triptych cover art by Bob Pepper. You're likely familiar w/ Bob's epic psychedelic oeuvre -- Love's eponymous 1966 album, Debussy's "Greatest Hits", George Crumb's "Ancient Voices of Children", and a whole host of PKD and other SF covers. Peake's original sketches are also included. Peake is often overlooked because Gormenghast is considered just so bloody weird, but he really was a poet of the first water. #mervynpeake #gormanghast #bobpepper

Contrary (perhaps) to expectations, on my rare travels I don’t buy a lot of books (or even souvenirs). I like to travel lightly and keep trying to figure ways to travel even more lightly (should the travel opportunities arise). However, these followed me home, one from Foyles and one from the National Gallery in London. No, I did not meet Patti Smith (this was left over from a batch signing). That I would have reported already.

I love the drawings of Mervyn Peake. One of the first sculptures I ever made was Irma Prunesquallor (from Gormenghast) and this is another, a tiny one, plus a drawn one on driftwood and the original.

Grosnez, on the north west coast of Jersey. The remains of a 12th century fort. This part of the island is very different from the rest; flat windswept and it feels ancient. It is covered in swathes of heather and black moss. It reminds me of parts of Northumberland and North Yorkshire in England. On the horizon you may be able to make out a flat, grey small island, Sark. We’re going there next week. No motor vehicles, just push bikes and horses and carts. Very excited. #grosnez #ruins #12thcentury #fort #arch #heather #moss #silverroots #flat #sea #turquoise cliffs #Sark #mervynpeake #birthdayboy #happybirthday

A wet Saturday afternoon, the perfect time for a good old rummage. Found these wonderful little Sesame Street characters which used to sit on a shelf in my daughter's room. I remember searching everywhere (pre-internet!) for more in the series 🙂 And my first copies of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast, very old, well read and well loved, with a poetry book teenaged me used to take everywhere, the pages of my favourite pieces well thumbed. They're a Puffin and Penguin delight! 😀 #mervynpeake #gormenghast #penguinbooks #puffinbooks #sesamestreet #cookiemonster #bertandernie

Also, my dad put a plastic cover over the book (he's loaned it to me to read) which makes it so hard to take pictures of without the light reflecting weirdly

For most of us, depression will never leave us.

Self Portrait 1972
This self portrait was painted when Maeve was 55; the canvas takes stage which, to me, is a poignant reminder of Maeve’s resilience and commitment to her work. As in an earlier self portrait - where she holds a piece of chalk - Maeve wants us to view her as an artist. My admiration for her grows the more I understand her struggle for her work to be taken seriously.

Maeve also captures here the pain of nursing her beloved husband Mervyn through a harrowing illness as well as her grief at his subsequent death. .

Self Portrait 1972 This self portrait was painted when Maeve was 55; the canvas takes stage which, to me, is a poignant reminder of Maeve’s resilience and commitment to her work. As in an earlier self portrait - where she holds a piece of chalk - Maeve wants us to view her as an artist. My admiration for her grows the more I understand her struggle for her work to be taken seriously. . Maeve also captures here the pain of nursing her beloved husband Mervyn through a harrowing illness as well as her grief at his subsequent death. . . . #maevegilmore  #artist  #britishartist  #londonartist  #portrait  #womeninthearts  #familycollection  #midcenturymodern  #timesup  #artistsoninstagram  #art  #modernbritishart  #modernart  #modernism  #londonart  #privatecollection  #postwarbritishart  #britishart  #mervynpeake  #1972  #selfportrait 
🐿Kabul! Ben tezimden ve tezimde kullanmadigim ama gecelerce arastirip geri donusum kutusuna gitmesine kiyamadigim bilgileri kullanarak yazdigim makalemden sonra biraz kafayi siyirdim Lewis Carroll ile. Geceleri ruyamda Victoria Londrasinda Anglikan kiliselerde falan muhabbet ediyoruz. Carroll arastirmacisi olarak kariyerime devam edebilirim su an.
E tabii olarak bu surecte kendisinin okunmadik eserini de birakmadim. "The Hunting of the Snark" bunlardan biri. .
.
🐿8 siirden olusan kitabin dili inanilmaz politik ve satirik. Cunku Carroll. Disaridan gorundugu kadar kolay degil bence asla Carroll okumak. Yoruyor nukteleri anlamaya calismak ama muthis keyifli. Ozellikle bu edisyonda Mervyn Peake inanilmaz illustrasyonlara imza atmis. Cok kiymetli bir eser- ve basim benim gozumde.
Carroll okuyun mutlaka, iyi haftalar!

Finding old favourites is slowing me down #mervynpeake#sketches#gormenghast
Made the mistake of dipping into the first chapter of the Gormenghast Trilogy by Mervyn Peake for the first time in about a decade. Now I'm happily entrapped in the towers and corridors again. As a consequence here's a small sketch I did over lunch of the Hall of the Bright Carvings with the curator Rottclod and the sinister Flay in the foreground. It really is a fantastically written series, with castle-loads of humour, humanity and wit. I totally reccomend it if you get the chance!

Linger now with me, thou Beauty,  On the sharp archaic shore.  Surely 'tis a wastrel's duty  And the gods could ask no more.  If thou lingerest when I linger,  If thou tread'st the stones I tread,  Thou wilt stay my spirit's hunger  And dispel the dreams I dread.  Come thou, love, my own, my only,  Through the battlements of Groan;  Lingering becomes so lonely  When one lingers on one's own.  I have lingered in the cloisters  Of the Northern Wing at night,  As the sky unclasped its oysters  On the midnight pearls of light;  For the long remorseless shadows  Chilled me with exquisite fear.  I have lingered in cold meadows  Through a month of rain, my dear.  Come, my Love, my sweet, my Only,  Through the parapets of Groan.  Lingering can be very lonely  When one lingers on one's own.  In dark alcoves I have lingered  Conscious of dead dynasties;  I have lingered in blue cellars  And in hollow trunks of trees.  Many a traveler through moonlight  Passing by a winding stair  Or a cold and crumbling archway  Has been shocked to see me there.  I have longed for thee, my Only,  Hark! the footsteps of the Groan!  Lingering is so very lonely  When one lingers all alone.  Will thou come with me, and linger?  And discourse with me of those  Secret things the mystic finger  Points to, but will not disclose?  When I'm all alone, my glory  Always fades, because I find  Being lonely drives the splendour  Of my vision from my mind.  Come, oh, come, my own! my Only!  Through the Gormenghast of Groan.  Lingering has become so lonely  As I linger all alone!

Mervyn Peake, Titus Groan (Gormenghast, #1)
