Hi There!

I'm currently leading a crowdfunder to print a high quality new edition of Sheffield radical Edward Carpenter's 1883 poem Towards Democracy, to celebrate Carpenter's 175th birthday.

Though Carpenter is fondly remembered, it is hard to come by good quality editions of his work on the high street. None of his work for example, is available to purchase at Waterstone's even in Sheffield! You can however buy a copy of Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman, who inspired Carpenter to write Towards Democracy.

I'd be grateful if you'd consider pledging to the campaign. You can also follow the us on Twitter!
