Guests of Time

edited by John Holmes, with photographs by Scott Billings

A full-colour, limited edition hardback commemorating three poets' residency at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

Just twenty copies now remaining, not to be reprinted.

In 2016, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History hosted three poets-in-residence: John Barnie, Steven Matthews and Kelley Swain.

Inspired by their time delving into the museum’s drawers and cabinets, the poets’ new work viewed the collections with fresh eyes. Their poems are presented here alongside 19th-century poetry from writers linked with the early days of the museum.

Together, the poems in this anthology are a tribute to the Pre-Raphaelite origins of the Oxford University Museum, and a rejuvenation of its artistic legacy.
