I am delighted to announce a new book from Chris Dorley-Brown. Busy as ever with his attractive phlegm Chris has managed to produce a masterpiece. This is the first ever book from Overlapse independent publisher and what a result! This is a softcover 168 pages A4 format that takes you through his family past. Family snaps or compositions, objects scanned, letters and recent urban landscapes create an unfamiliar narrative in which you immerse yourself straight away. The story makes you travel but the core remains in East London.
This is a very honest and brave enterprise in which the design plays a key role. There is too much to talk about and my words can't express enough how much I admire the challenge and result delivered by Chris and Overlapse. I can only say, go and visit the website where the book is on pre-sale. This is simply one of the best book I have had in recent years. Congratulations to you both!
