Photographed with Stephen Froom's wicker man sculpture from Treasure Island at Borders Bookshop, Bristol, where I 'represented' Mervyn Peake at a signing and sales session in the large store, located next to both the university and the City Museum. Later the same day, I spoke at the Bristol City Museum to a full house and the talk was followed by many interesting questions. Several copies of Mervyn Peake: The Man & His Art were sold. The hardcover edition has now virtually been sold out but a paperback edition is about to be published, and will cost just under £20.
