Delighted to say that Peter Driver's 'A Walk for Stanley' has been put to bed and is now at the printers. The first copies are expected by early July. So pleased to have been able to work on this beautiful book - a real pleasure.
Oliver Sumner (Manager, Contemporary Visual Arts Network (CVAN) South East) reviews the book:
“Peter Driver’s ‘A Walk for Stanley,’ shares Spencer’s unflinching yen to be amongst the world, in all its epic and everyday detail. Both book as artwork and walk as artwork, he has found a multi-sided form of expression; containing magical bird sightings, drawings made urgently on the hoof, a hint of memoir, the personal and the political, by the discipline of point to point navigation. In the honest vulnerability of this endeavour we find a more grounded way of thinking about the things that matter, even a philosophy of how to be an artist; sustained by self-reliance but open to the world, doubts and all. He writes in a poem, ‘A boy again, being a soldier on a mission to acknowledge something I couldn’t quite express another way’."
