Celebrate the publication of The Unwinding with Jackie Morris this summer...
It has been an uncertain year and many plans have had to be re-shaped to accommodate keeping everyone safe...
Jackie Morris was expecting to be in Dulverton this summer, she is, like many of you unable to join us in person but we can still celebrate the publication of The Unwinding here on the website and via our social media channels.
Signed copies of the book are available to order and we also have a wonderful selection of prints and originals available to purchase. Do enjoy browsing the collection featured below.
The Unwinding is not meant to be read from cover to cover. It is a book for dreamers. Slight of word, rich of image, its purpose is to ease the soul. The paintings between these covers were worked in the between times, an unwinding of the soul, when the pressures of work were too much. Dreams and wishes are the inspiration at times like this. Threaded through the curious world of The Unwinding are words, slight and lyrical. Their aim is to set the reader's mind adrift from the troubles of our times, into peaceful harbours where imagination can stretch, where quiet reflection can bring peace.
Designed to be a companion, The Unwinding is a place of respite from an increasingly frantic and complex world, a talisman to be turned to again and again.
