Aquanauts

£10.00

Sidekick Headbooks No. 1 Aquanauts is a multi-tentacled, technicolour haul from the underwater realms, advancing from the rich broth of garden ponds to the immutable dark of the deep sea. It’s your very own unreliable handbook to sharks and skates, subs and spookfish, vile jellies and sorrowful shipwrecks, with pages to record your own facts, findings, ideas and journal entries. Keep it with you, fill it up, and pass it on, or stow it way for later enthralment. 176pp, ISBN 978-1-909560-26-0

Description

Headbooks: headlong expeditions into the half-known. A blend of the factual and fantastical, the lyrical and the visual – and fully customisable, with scrapbook and do-it-yourself pages. Get creative and join us on our foray Aquanauts is the first book in the series, and is a deep dive into the layers and landscapes of the underwater world. Meet and respond to lanternfish, sorrowful shipwrecks and an exquisite oarfish. Surface with your own unique book in your flipper. “But whatever the response, there is a buoyant feeling of initiative being handed over – back – to the reader: ownership of these various adventures is shared in this subversive, disruptive manual. Such an approach must be closer to the heart of poetry than that of many a more earnest anthology.” Richard Westcott, North magazine
