Read full description of the books:
Brought to Book sets out to explode the myth that books are a closed, escapist world. Brought to Book spans the spectrum of reading rituals and fetishism,: stealing, eating and cooking books; books as status symbols, food for termites, aids to seduction and espionage; books associated with journeys, salling in and out of love, imprisonment and freedom; books and their relationship with war, death, religion, sex, night and day dreams.
The 12 international contributors to this original and hugely entertaining anthology include many of the sharpest creative talents working today: novelists Brian Aldiss, Rikki Ducornet, Beryl Gilroy, William Gibson, Iain Sinclair and Lynne Tillman; poets Ivor Cutler, David Gascoyne, Selma Hill and Robert Nye; artists Glen Baxter, David Mach and Ed Ruscha; musicians Kevin COyne and Ron Geesin; photographers Martin Parr and Jean Fraser; biographers and essayists Michael Holroyd and Marcel Berlins.
All recount, in words and pictures, how comic, tragic, erotic, mysterious or bizarre personal experiences have made extraordinary connections between books and the world around them. They bear witness that the books we possess simultaneously possess us too.
