Apple Pie Editions is delighted to announce the publication of From the Diaries of John Dee.
Poems by Nigel Wood, with images by Alan Halsey.
Mathematician, scholar, astronomer, advisor to Queen Elizabeth I … alchemist, occultist, heretic … John Dee (1527–1608) is one of the most enigmatic figures in British history.
Using material from Dee’s diaries, Nigel Wood has made poems that delve beneath the rumours and mythologies to offer a multifaceted portrait of a man seeking to understand the cosmos and his place within it. Accompanying the poems are visuals by Alan Halsey based on Dee’s transcriptions, charts and diagrams, his attempts to decode and interpret communications from other realms. Together the texts and images undertake a series of parallel explorations of his life and vision, resurrecting Dee with his own words.
