David has a broad, strong back, well suited for organic gardening, driving old Landrovers, and reinventing the economics of poetry. He makes publications of poems from recycled Readers Digest Condensed book covers and banana box cardboards, often in public places, on a footpath bench seat or from the bonnet of his car. Using stamp pad alphabet sets, a stapler, glue sticks, a photocopier and a copy left intellectual property model, Landroverfarm Press has now published over 100 distinct titles from unique single page A3 publications to collections, boxsets, #poetryracks, a #poetrybrick and anthologies.
