Portal Summer - Robert Ford and Julian Hyde

I am a great admirer of the work of writer, photographer and psychogeographer Julian Hyde. He kindly published my pieces ‘as blank as the days yet to be’ and ‘in the fall of light’ in well-designed limited edition booklets also featuring his fine images.

Julian is now taking pre-orders for a similar booklet by author Robert Ford - details below. I am sure this will be a beautiful and evocative item.

Robert Ford and Julian Hyde present Portal Summer.

An elusive , delicate and melancholic work.

It will be a full colour A5 risograph booklet printed by Earthbound Press.

It describes a radial walk taken from the centre of a small town into the unregarded landscape of portals.

Julian's photographs suggest that the otherworld you've sometimes sensed is with us all the time, whilst Robert's ghostly prose poem pinpoints the "already debatable lines between the Town and Un - Town".

It is limited to 30 hand-numbered copies, featuring a collaged envelope and two additional art cards. Only 12 copies remain to pre-order.

£15 incl UK postage. Enquire for overseas postage.
