The moon drives everyone mad you know that, well enough. But this is no lycanthropic or otherwise spooky metamorphosis: it s far stranger than that... When Quentin Blake embarked on creating a set of new drawings on fantasies of travel, even he had not envisaged a series so sombre, so haunting, as Moonlight Travellers. These watercolour journeys through unknown landscapes capture, with unmatched skill, all the mystery and intrigue of the dead of night. A unique collaboration, this book brings Blake s macabre wit into dialogue with the imaginative insight of Will Self. With characteristic sharpness, Self mingles fiction, fact and flights of memory to transport the reader on a radical tour of Blake s mysterious lands. In Moonlight Travellers, two creative minds at the height of their powers connect word and image, darkness and light with our deepest sensibilities. In eight-wheeled contraptions and winged machines, they carry us on a trail of dreamlike journeys. After all, there s nothing more prosaic at least, at this end of human history than a car journey.

Review:

Evocative ... For fans of Blake, the frenzied, melancholic illustrations of night-time journeys in a fantastical yet familiar landscape, will appeal. Self s narrative of a journey to the moon echoes neatly --Press Association

[Quentin Blake and Will Self] are a harmonious match in their ability to say so much through exactitude of line and wash and perfectly crafted narrative --Vanity Fair
