Is This The Creepiest Poem on the Internet?
To celebrate the announcement, the team at Brindle have uploaded a new video to their YouTube channel of what is probably the creepiest poem on the entire platform; 'The Unhappy Courtship', which will appear in the book.
The new video follows their previous YouTube upload which was a book trailer for the company's first release, Normanby, the gripping and unconventional spy thriller by P. G. Dixon.
The thumbnail for the new video is a picture of the book's cover and once again, cover design plays an important role in the new release. It is, after all, the stated aim of Brindle Books Ltd 'to recapture the excitement that readers felt in the golden age of popular paperbacks, in the 1960's and 1970's, when they would get a visceral thrill at the sight of the newest paperback covers from publishers like Pan, Penguin and The New English Library.'
Richard Hinchliffe, the author of the work, designed the cover, along with his partner, Emma Garbett. "We wanted something new and strange as a cover image," he says, "in line with the content of the stories. When we came up with the eye motif, and actually produced the eyes for the book cover design on our kitchen table, we really liked the effect. Once we had taken photographs for the book cover design, and the creepy eyes that we had made were just sitting there, we knew that they were just too good to waste, and that's how the video came about."
The new title; A Little Book of Strange Tales by Richard Hinchliffe is due to be released on 1st March 2022 in both eBook and paperback formats.
