The Ariel Poems – part 2

The Ariel poems were a series of 38 pamphlets published between 1927 – 1931 by Faber and Gwyer (and later Faber and Faber) which contained illustrated poems.

Each numbered pamphlet had an illustrated cover. Four pages were sewn inside the cover, The frontispiece had another, usually multi-coloured illustration, and named the author and illustrator. Following that page was the poem. Several authors and illustrators had multiple pamphlets.

A second series of eight Ariel poems was published in 1954.

This is part 2 of a 2-part post on the original series of Ariel Poems. Part 1 covers poems 1-19. Part 2 covers poems 20-38:
