Traverse poetry trading cards are a mixture of contemporary and long-loved poems. As well as our standard packs (which come with cards ranging from plentiful to mid_rare to rare to super_rare) we produce very limited edition one-offs available through events, specific projects or festivals. Our very first Special Limited Edition is an orange scented version of Christina Rossetti’s poem ‘Colour’.
