The fourth full collection by Brian Johnstone, and his second to be published by Arc in their Poetry from the UK & Ireland series, April 2021.
In The Marks on the Map Brian Johnstone takes us on a remarkable journey, not just to discover what is there, but also what was there, mapping time as well as space. This is one map I would urge readers to follow, because the world through which Johnstone guides us is so utterly moving, so totally familiar and so entirely new.

'The poems establish their own presence, leaving room for mystery and lyricism to emerge with a convincing uniqueness. Dry Stone Work is a robust collection, packed with original strengths, delicacies, variety, and a vivid awareness of life.' Douglas Dunn
The second full collection by Brian Johnstone, published by Arc in 2009 in their Poetry from the UK & Ireland series.
'his poems come from a calm meditation on the tenuousness of surfaces and the vacancy and displacement that unsettles us when we contemplate them…’ John Miller, Northwords Now
