Dear The Readers,
A few changes this month. Firstly because I am writing this while driving through Los Angeles - Yesterday I saw an address by chance that I had previously sent a book to. Small world, lots of readers!
Secondly because in March we will publish our first piece of original writing - directly relating to the book it will be sent within.
March's book in Flights by Olga Toharczuk, a book which has shouted at me to be read from every bookshop I entered last year, a book about modern day travel. I found the time to read because my friend Victoria, Artist/Norwegian expat in Paris/brilliant mind has this wonderful annotated copy with magical annotations inside on the pages of text. She also wrote/translated from Norwegian her own observations inspired by one book.
I can't think of a more beautiful way of reading together, than reading a book already annotated, and attached by a thin red thread.
We give you the option here to add €5 to your order and receive the hand threaded essay and rice paper drawings within.
Otherwise of course, as usual, you will receive your copy of the book, a postcard by Victoria and the podcast towards the end of the month.
I can't wait to reveal Victoria's beautiful writing to you all and I hope that as far as I travel this year I can connect with great literature and ideas around the world.
