Longbarrow Press is proud to announce the publication of Peter Riley‘s long-awaited new pamphlet, The Ascent of Kinder Scout, a meditation on (and elegy for) this physical and cultural landmark of the Peak District.

Beautifully designed and produced, The Ascent of Kinder Scout is now available for just £5 (inc UK P&P). Click on the relevant PayPal option below to order your copy.

Paul Evans‘s current exhibition at Sheffield’s Graves Gallery brings together drawings of mythical, elusive and endangered creatures, including a life-sized drawing of a spade-toothed whale, and the haunting, riddling series Bestiary of Bones (a collaboration with poet A.B. Jackson). Longbarrow Press has produced a new podcast featuring Evans and Jackson discussing gut parasites, the romantic sublime and the development of The Paper Museum (at the Graves Gallery until Saturday 16 August; open Wed-Fri 10am-3pm, Sat 11am-4pm, admission free. Further details are available here). You can listen to the podcast below:
