Visual Writing

Visual writing is a catch-all phrase we made up, but it taps into a rich literary heritage (from Laurence Sterne’s Tristram Shandy to BS Johnson’s The Unfortunates and more recently Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Graham Rawle’s Woman’s World.)

When we think of visual writing, we think about the visuals feeding into and adding to the storytelling as much as the words on the page do. We also like to make sure that the visuals aren’t gimmicky, purely decorative or extraneous, but are key to the story they are telling. And without them, that story would be something altogether different.

Our strap line is Great Looking Stories.

Great Looking Events

We also like to create events that bring our books to life in different ways.

We like to think of these as Great Looking Stories moving from the page or off the screen to people.
