LONGLISTED FOR THE 2020 KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL

'A quiet masterpiece... a love story, a hope story, a story out of time, out of stricture, out of the narrow artificial bounds by which we try to contain the wild wonderland of reality because we are too frightened to live wonder-stricken' MARIA POPOVA, Brain Pickings

'The tales feel like half-remembered dreams, peopled with fairytale characters and magnificent creatures'  REBECCA ARMSTRONG i-Paper 'Books of the Year'

'A powerful spell book to make the sleepless fall into slumber and the agitated calm' i-Paper

'A lyrical and enchanting collection' Scotsman

This has been a busy year for Jackie Morris. As well as creating another bestselling collaboration with Robert Mcfarlane in The Lost Spells (Hamish Hamilton) she has also published The Unwinding, which has been described as ‘bedtime stories for grown-ups’.

We like to think of it as a pillow book, a portal where the beauty of Jackie’s words and images set the reader s mind adrift from the troubles of our times, into peaceful harbours where imagination can stretch, where quiet reflection can bring peace – something which has mattered a great deal in this most difficult and challenging of years.

As a result, we have produced a limited gift edition of the book, with a beautiful text-free book jacket with a new hidden story (‘In the Shape of a Bear’ printed on the reverse).


The gift edition also has beautiful new endpapers, designed by Jackie, a fish embossed in foil on the cloth binding and a silk ribbon marker. It would make a beautiful gift – and every copy comes with a signed bookplate (also designed by Jackie).

 

If you want to order in time for Christmas, please do so on our before TUESDAY 15th DECEMBER
