iS A GRAPHIC DESIGNER AND WRITER ON DESIGN, TYPOGRAPHY AND DESIGN HISTORY
Hi, thanks for visiting the site!
A GEOGRAPHY OF HORROR
A project that’s been in my mind, and then on my screen, ever since I realised that M.R. James was barely commemorated in his favourite county, which he used so well in some of his best stories. A Geography of Horror is a book that brings together two loves: short supernatural fiction, and the landscape, particularly the coastline, in the county of Suffolk. Actually, make that three things: my love of designing books too!
A mini-masterpiece, and an absolute ‘must’
for anyone who has read M.R. James.
