Moonlight Travellers

(2019)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Bringing together two formidable talents for the first time, this literary and artistic collaboration on the theme of night travel features original artwork by Quentin Blake and text by Will Self.

This breakthrough publication promises both to excite and haunt the reader's imagination. Quentin Blake, the so-called Godfather of Illustration, combines his talents with novelist Will Self, "one of the most manically imaginative writers at work today" (Financial Times). The result is a book of irresistible appeal to literature and art lovers alike.

Blake's watercolors relate, with dark, fantastical humor, the experience of journeying across unknown landscapes in the dead of night. Accompanying this artistic narrative is an equally evocative text from the ever-brilliant mind of Will Self. With characteristic sharpness and wit, Self melds fact, fiction, and memory to transport the reader in the most radical way, departing on unexpected trajectories in response to Blake's visual romp through time and space. Together, word and image connect with our deepest sensibilities in Moonlight Travellers as we journey through the landscapes and dreamscapes of night.
