Sophie’s Story by Belinda Whiting gives an account of her daughter's life and early death, aged three. Written to assist the mourning process and confronting loss and grief it is nevertheless a celebratory reflection on a young life. Using simple words and a large sans serif typeface, alternating with photographs from the family album, it was written to enhance understanding (particularly for a younger audience), of the reality of a short life that was both ordinary and exceptional.

The Authorial Illustrator

The Authorial Illustrator    £10.00
10 years of the Falmouth Illustration Forum. The Authorial Illustrator seeks to reassert illustration as a developing practice; working against the tendency for the discipline of illustration to be seen as a repetitive commodity where the illustrator is presented with an already clearly defined concept. Each year the renowned Falmouth Illustration Forum has created a theme which explores a different face of authorial illustration practice, shedding light on different aspects of the work of an authorial illustrator, the development of an illustrator’s individual voice and the assertion of their personal characteristics of authorship. ‘I think what you’re doing is really important, in redefining and re-validating illustration as a profession.’ Jonathon Rosen. The Authorial Illustrator is a not-for-profit publication. The price contributes to production costs only. £10 + P&P  (AUTH)

Beyond the Wire

Beyond the Wire    £11.99
‘...and when we lost them, not one by one but in the dozens, I would say: “not to worry lads, I’ll write us some replacements.”’ Alys Jones has authored a meta-fiction based on the First World War, a visual conversation with the poets and our collective historical knowledge of the years 1914-1918. Boundaries between fiction and reality are blurred. The content is heightened and redirected by the form of the pages, cut away as if explosions have torn the fabric of the narrative, revealing new image combinations, and generating new meaning. The book serves as a purgatory, a narrative no-man’s land for the characters, who inhabit a fictional narrative outside of ‘real time’. "A brilliant recreation of scenes from the Great War. Powerful, moving and critical. We need more like this in these dark modern times where the response to today's conflicts is invariably apathy or neo-jingoism." Pat Mills, Author of Charley's War  (WIRE)
