You may have seen that Matt Abbott published his début collection via Verve Poetry Press on 4 October, with the 22 poems from his ‘Two Little Ducks’ show plus 15 additional poems in a ‘Selected Poems 2015-2018’.

We’re thrilled to be stocking copies of the book in our online store. And not only that, we’ve also released a studio album featuring recordings of the poem from the show. The studio album is a download only release.

You can purchase the book alone for £10, the digital album for £5, or both together for £12.
