[verso flap]

Artists. Writers. Photographers. Musicians. A comedian. An actor. A printer. An airship.

The people interviewed in this book come from all corners of Britain’s cultural landscape but are united in focus and commitment to their craft.

At the beginning of this extraordinary memoir, Dan Richards impulsively decides to build an airship in his art school bar, an act of opposition which leads him to meet and interview some of Britain’s most extraordinary artists, craftsmen and technicians in the spaces and environments in which they work.

His search for what it is that compels both he and they to create becomes a profound examination of what it is to be an artist in 21st Century Britain, and an inspiring testament to the importance of making art for art’s sake.

Review:

Praise for HOLLOWAY:

‘An impressionistic piece of landscape writing, Holloway evokes the sense that time is densely layered in these secret lanes; many people have trodden here, and their ghosts are still apparent in the deep tree-shaded paths’ Financial Times

‘The pleasures herein are almost intangible and they're certainly initially fleeting. Yet these pellucid tales of Dorset's deep-set lanes and their duvets of foliage will stay with you long into the summer dusk and may even encourage you to embark on your own investigation of England's ancient arteries’ Metro

‘A perfect miniature prose poem of a book, beautifully printed and published’ William Dalrymple, Observer Books of the Year

‘Glorious … endearingly open-hearted’ Barnaby Rogerson, Sunday Telegraph Books of the Year

About the Author:

Dan Richards was born in Wales in 1982 and grew up in Bristol. He has studied at UEA and Norwich Art School.

Dan is co-author of Holloway with Robert Macfarlane and Stanley Donwood; first published in 2012 as a limited run of 277 books – letterpress printed by Richard Lawrence in his Oxford workshop – followed by a general edition by Faber in 2013.

Climbing Days, an exploration of the writing and climbing lives of his great-great aunt and uncle – Dorothy Pilley and I. A. Richards – is set to be published by Faber in Spring 2016.
