Rurality Re-imagined: Villagers, Farmers, Wanderers and Wild Things

This new book contains a chapter I’ve written about the importance of Improvisation. It also features my work Instar and items from the Farm Archive.
George McKay has reviewd the book and says: This sparkling collection of essays, photographs, artwork, creative writing and meditations represents a sustained exploration of and contribution to cultures of the countryside and the liminal spaces of the non-urban. Through it we see the contemporary rural in cultural glimpses and social practices, as we seek to make sense of our desire to escape to or from its diminishing scope. It will be of fascination to today’s pastoralists and re-wilders, but it should absolutely be read too by cool artists of the city, urban designers and policy-makers alike, indeed by anyone curious about life and culture in 21st-century landscapes.
