About this product
- DescriptionNora Summers was responsible for some of the iconic images of Wales' most famous bard Dylan Thomas, but the inmost details of her life, bucolic and populated by bohemians, eccentrics and mavericks, have remained largely unkwn until w. A talented painter and photographer who revelled in documenting the picturesque, communal Arcadia she spent her whole life constructing and inhabiting, her relationships with Thomas and, more predominantly, his wife, Caitlin Macnamara, birthed creativity and strife in equal measure. Part biography, part photobook, Dylan Thomas and the Bohemians draws from the personal archives, both physical and memorial, of Gabriel Summers, Nora's grandson, and his partner Leonie, with contributions from Jeff Towns, a leading writer on the life and work of Dylan Thomas, and seeks to present an intimate and revealing portrait of both Summers and the creative company she kept.
- Author BiographyAntiquarian bookseller Jeff Towns has been pursuing and dealing in the books, manuscripts, letters, iconography and ephemera surrounding Dylan Thomas from his home town of Swansea for over forty years. In that time Jeff has been fortunate in handling some quite remarkable materials now he has turned his hand to writing about Dylan, recently editing Vernon Watkins on Dylan Thomas & Other Poets and Poetry and A Pearl of Great Price: The Love Letters of Dylan Thomas to Pearl Kazin.
