Unearthing Oversized Hardcover
All about this product:
One of the world’s foremost authors of the fantastic, Alan Moore, joins
internationally esteemed photographer Mitch Jenkins for an unprecedented
visual and literary experience. An intensely poetic and innovative work
of biography, Unearthing maps the lifetime of author, Orientalist and
occultist Steve Moore, while simultaneously investigating the
extraordinary history of South London with which that life has been
intertwined. Integrating text with haunting and exquisite imagery,
Unearthing excavates a territory at the margins of a city, of reality,
and of human imagination.
Starting life in Iain Sinclair’s seminal anthology London: City of Disappearances,
this dazzling and hypnotic piece has evolved through a series of live
performances and acclaimed recordings, culminating in this breathtaking
full-colour volume. Two formats are available, a deluxe softcover
edition, as well as this special oversized hardcover edition limited to
1,500 copies worldwide.
"Steve Moore, who lives in the same
room he was born in 61 years earlier, is a living metaphor for the
history, geography and geology of Shooter's Hill and a conduit to the
Greek gods and spiritual manifestations... Is it great art? Yes!" -- N.M.E.
“The men of Unearthing are only marginally of this plane of existence, and what they’ve created is positively out of this world.” -- The AV Club
“A tribute to a colleague and mentor and a demonstration that Moore has transcended the boundaries of the graphic novel.” – The New York Times
