About the book

Poetry was my place, my little clearing in the forest, where I could quietly put everything I was holding. Im not sure what gave me the courage to open up that space to you, but here I am, doing it.

The Magic Border is the debut book from Mercury Prize-winning musician and poet Arlo Parks, combining never-before-seen poetry, song lyrics and beautiful, intimate images from collaborator, photographer Daniyel Lowden.

Featuring twenty original poems, alongside an exclusive artists statement and the complete lyrics from her sophomore album My Soft Machine, this vital collection explores the queer experience, blackness, grief, trauma and love through the eyes of the remarkable young musician.

The Magic Border allows readers rare insight into her creative process and beautifully showcases the full breadth of Arlos singular artistry.

The most tender and tactile collection. Arlo Parks writes poetry you can taste Ķ An embrace of a book Florence Welch

Arlo Parks pulls beauty around her as a war tactic, and she shares the spoils with us. I am grateful and invigorated Katie Gavin, MUNA

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
