My new book (all about foxes as you’ll know if you follow me on twitter,) is currently at the printers and I should get the pages delivered this week! The release date is Monday the 6th of August, and I’ll be launching the book at the International Alternative Press Festival on the 4th/5th August. So if you want to snap up an early copy you can find me that weekend at Conway Hall, Holborn (25 Red Lion Square, London, Greater London WC1R 4RL.)
I’ll be giving away this beautiful free archival print with the first 20 orders that I get via paypal, so make sure you click the paypal button on this website as soon as possible from the 6th onwards! :o)
The book is a really personal account of the six years I spent living in Brockley, South East London, with families of foxes that I completely fell in love with sharing my garden. At the start of 2012 I moved house and won’t be seeing the foxes any more, so I decided to make this book to celebrate how much I enjoyed having them around for that period of my life. It chronicles my observations and contact with the foxes… their behaviour and characteristics, and the pros & cons of having them as my neighbours! The illustrations are based on the many photos I collected over the years. The book is illustrated mainly in pencil with some watercolour, and the interior is all black and white. It’s printed on lovely textured Tintoretto gesso paper stock. The cover and endpapers are in colour, and the books will be bound by hand by me, as all Tomatito Press books are.
