A creative festival in print form: Philip Gross

Monographer writes: Sometimes in publishing there’s an opportunity to do something both genuinely creative and unique. An example is the forthcoming publication described below, which I’m very much looking forward to publishing.

The book: Caves of Making provides a sustained exploration, and celebration, of creativity. It brings together the work of three remarkable creatives. TS Eliot prizewinner Philip Gross provides a poem, ‘Cave diver in the deep reach’, and an extended commentary on how the poem was written. The book also features an essay by typographerJeremy Tankard, whose unique ‘Redisturbed’ typeface is used in this book, and an interview with artist Rika Newcombe, who provides the cover image. We offer Caves of Making as the textual equivalent of a creative festival – a festival on the page, as it were.
