Introduction to the book Spirits of Place

As we announced on the weekend, we've just released a new book featuring essays from Alan Moore, Warren Ellis, Maria J. Pérez Cuervo, Iain Sinclair and others, titled Spirits of Place.

I've just made the official website for the book live, and added a PDF of the full introduction to the book (by editor John Reppion), so head over to the Spirits of Place website and check it out. It sets the tone for the book beautifully, with John recounting his own personal experience of a "vision of fourth-dimensional time" overlaid on a location, his fascination and interaction with the ancient megaliths of Liverpool, and how the book came to be.

The website is fairly sparse at the moment, but we'll add extra content as we find time - it's a fascinating topic, I think the modern world has lost its relationship with the 'spirit' of place, and we should start thinking about it more and 'connecting' with the environments we live in in more meaningful ways.

We also have ordering information for the book on the site, but it's worth noting that stock is dwindling on the limited edition hardcover (we're currently releasing the first 100 of the entire print run of 200, with added tip-in sheet signed by Alan Moore, Iain Sinclair, Joanne Parker, Maria J. Pérez Cuervo and John Reppion, to be shipped in January), so if you're after a copy you should get in fairly soon. Easy purchasing button below (the price is roughly $AUS93, which works out at around $US70) - note too that we'll send out a complimentary Kindle eBook edition of the book with each order, for those who can't wait to read it.
