SCRAMBLER REDUX

BOOK DESIGN: OMIROS PANAYIDES

It’s April and we’re celebrating the second official launch of Fortino Samano’s seminal first book of Cypriot poems and we still don’t really know who the man is.

Since the first launch several new “facts” have emerged, however. Here is what we now know.

Samano’s book Scrambler was published by indie book juggernaut OWK Press, run and operated by former WWF fixer and one-time llama farmer Omiros Panayides.

The launch is happening in Limassol on 21 April, 2018 at a place called Tapper, a disco bar whose dress code has been described as “anything goes as long as you’re wearing spandex and are toting a lion cub”.

Beyond that we have only conjecture.

Stay tuned for 10 new, absolutely kind of true facts about Samano and his book as we near the launch date.
