The Book Of Apertures

Yesterday I went to the launch of The Book Of Apertures in Farringdon as a guest of Hannah Osborne of Amelia's Magazine. The book is a collection of poems, short stories and illustrations by the Lazy Gramophone arts collective. The collaborative work is absolutely charming, and the editor Sam Rawlings was very nice indeed. Try and get hold of a copy of the book; whilst you won't love everything in it, it's diverse enough to please everyone in one way or another. The book focuses on the swirling mythical world which surrounds our real life, the modern fairy stories within are illustrated delightfully with original drawings.

Look out for Hannah's article about the book at Amelia's Magazine and try to get to a book launch if you can, they're pretty fun and you get to feel quite important.
