Review quote

'The work being done by Skelton and Richardson in projects such as Reliquiae is both ground-breaking and ground-preserving; in that rare feat of imagination, the future of a culture is mapped using ancient methods, connecting the natural heritage of the English landscape to a way of speaking and thinking that we are still to resolve. A Corbel Stone Press publication, for all its modesty, is an artefact of the greatest cultural significance, a time capsule travelling in both directions.' (Luke Allan)

'Reliquae is the genuine article, a colloquium for folklore and folkways, where the regional is inseparable from the international, where philology gives rise to poetry, and something magical happens on the printed page.' (Henry Wessells)

'It guides the imagination toward what Domenico Comparetti, a nineteenth-century folklorist and Homeric scholar, suspected to be the root of all poetry, magic song.' (Peter O'Leary)

'Work that sings uniquely startling and surprising songs. It is by far the most innovative and ground-breaking work relating to any aspect of literary exploration and publication that I have come across in the last decade.' (Alyson Hallett)
