This book provides a sustained exploration, and celebration, of creativity. It brings together the work of three remarkable creatives. TS Eliot prizewinner Philip Gross provides a poem, ‘Cave diver in the deep reach’, and an extended commentary on how the poem was written. The book also features an essay by typographerJeremy Tankard, whose unique ‘Redisturbed’ typeface is used in this book, and an interview with artist Rika Newcombe, who provides the cover image. We offer Caves of making as the textual equivalent of a creative festival – a festival on the page, as it were.
