thePeriodical-nov2013
Lost Possessions by Kevin Harris and Martin Dudley explores how, through a series of vignettes, we experience a kind of community through loss of things – gloves, scarves, hats, a bootee, a tie. Things which soon become a common feature of railings, benches and other street furniture, inviting us to speculate on how they became lost. They are temporary moments of connection to unseen and unknown others, drawing us into a consideration of other people’s lives that can never be resolved.

This month we are very excited to bring a book we helped launch back in 2011 to a new audience, Picnic : order, ambiguity and community by Kevin Harris, illustrated by Gemma Orton. It is a true gem – a thoughtful essay on the role of picnic in contemporary society and specifically on community engagement and development, something very close to our hearts at Proboscis. We have worked with Kevin in the past, most notably on our Conversations and Connections project for Social Tapestries. This is a joyous and incisive piece of writing with elegant and witty illustrations by Gemma Orton.

It is accompanied from our archives by Why Keep a Sketchbook? by AccessArt which we printed as an experiment in 2010. This lovely book is a visual explanation of the pleasures of keeping a sketchbook – showing all kinds of different ways to do it.
