    A sequel to the highly popular first volume, Postings, 2 supplies yet more linguistic and social absurdities by editor and bibliophile Jim McCue, best known for his edition, with Christopher Ricks, of T. S. Eliot’s poetry. Elegantly presented and an ideal small gift, this volume complements McCue’s wit with even more delightful, historical printers’ decorations from over the centuries.

    About the Author

    While working as an editor for The Times ('a once-great newspaper'), Jim McCue wrote the bibliomane column about collecting books. His private imprint the Foundling Press published uncollected writing by William Empson, A. E. Housman, Ben Jonson, Henry James and others. Together with Christopher Ricks, he spent the best part of a decade editing The Poems of T. S. Eliot, which was Book of the Year for 2015 in the Times Literary Supplement and won three international prizes. His attempts to edit the internet have proved less successful, and he was stung when it sent him a message saying he had 'no discernible influence'. He is a member of the Half-Crown Club of book-collectors instead, and runs a Shakespeare zoom group which is reading through the First Folio for the second time.
