It has been an interesting year. One of forced withdrawal from society, to keep safe; one of a time to reflect on life as we knew it; and one of a time to create within one's private dome of creativity without interruptions.
AUTHORS: COFFEE WITH HEMINGWAY
I had this little book kicking around for the longest time. I used it, for a while, as a teaching tool. It's final resting place has become an altered book.
They include Mrs. Ogmore-Pritchard, relentlessly nagging her two dead husbands; Captain Cat, reliving his seafaring times; the two Mrs. Dai Breads; Organ Morgan, obsessed with his music; and Polly Garter, pining for her dead lover. Later the town awakens and, aware now of how their feelings affect whatever they do, we watch them go about their daily business. (Wikipedia)
Once read, we were asked to pick and submit our ten favourite words from the piece. From these submissions the creators at UWE printed the Gwalia Gazette, combining the words into advertisements and a poem. From this, I created a book that lists the different characters in the book as well as using a poem and excerpt from the Gazette.
Taking sections of text from the original book, I added images of medieval human anatomy to match the text.
That's all the news for now. Wishing everyone a healthy autumn and getting back to being sociable again.
