Birmingham Jazz Incarnation


Birmingham Jazz Incarnation is a sequence of poems by Simon Turner. With illustrations by Mark Andrew Webber.

“What a feeling, when one escapes the musty

tomb-like bookshop atmosphere carrying a collection

of poetry under your arm, & barely stumbles three feet

before colliding with the gorgeous garish daylight: a crisp clean sky like a newly minted fiver,

no clouds, & blossoms exploding on every tree.”

The Emma Press

The Emma Press is an independent publisher specialising in poetry, short fiction and children’s books. We are trying to make publishing and literature as welcoming and accessible as possible.


Drawing on the inventions of Oulipo, Simon Turner decomposes and recomposes one of his own poems in a variety of forms and styles throughout Birmingham Jazz Incarnation. The result is a hymn to the pleasures of music, reading, writing, and city life, humming with a joyous experimental energy.

With black-and-white linocut illustrations by Mark Andrew Webber.
