Shameless II


Look! My little map in a glossy colour supplement to the Daily Telegraph. Wha-hey! Those long nights of fine nibs, whisky and trying to focus at 3am were all worth it. Pluvialis has a publication that isn't words!

The map is of course, not the point: what is the point here is Robert Macfarlane's wonderful prose. And the map looks much happier in the endpapers of this book, its natural home, for which it was lovingly drawn. You can read extracts here. Buy the book! It's wonderful.

Robert Macfarlane was interviewed by Mariella Frostrup on BBC Radio 4 this afternoon. You should be able to listen to the recording at the Open Book program web-site for the next week or so.

Thanks Tristram! I caught the end of it, but will listen to it properly online! Ta!
