A Bargain with the Light Launches

Last night saw the official launch of Jacqueline Saphra’s new book  A Bargain with the Light: Poems after Lee Miller in the atmospheric surroundings of the Cinema Museum in Lambeth. A packed audience were treated to Jacqueline reading the entire heroic crown of sonnets sequence, whilst the pictures by Lee Miller were displayed behind her. The book has benefited from exclusive rights to use and reproduce the iconic photographs by the Lee Miller Archive.


Jacqueline will be doing a book signing on Saturday 23rd September at the Imperial War Museum between 2pm-4pm. The Imperial War Museum hosted a seminal retrospective of Miller’s work in 2015 and we’re thrilled to be holding an event there.
