|Two of the shortlisted books...|
It was bitterly cold, utterly wet and extremely windy. Our book A Roller-coaster Around the Body (published by Franklin Watts/Hachette) didn't win first prize BUT I fell for Liverpool big time. Tate Liverpool is ace (super-knowledgeable, helpful and charming museum folk - as well as everyone else in Liverpool seemed to be...) and there I discovered, among many things that included a chocolate muffin and delicious cup of Earl Grey tea, the new (to me), brilliantly bonkers and utterly awesome artists, Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley. I was transported and blown-away by their bizarre, poetic and provocative installations/films.
|Including the specially commissioned by Tate Liverpool piece, 'In the Body of the Sturgeon'|
|WHOOP! Thank you ASE! What a great day out...|
