All Good Things: Stephen Ellcock in conversation with Mark Haddon

We are excited to announce this event at Foyles Charing Cross Road on 30 October:

Celebrate the intrinsic power of art curation with social media curator Stephen Ellcock in conversation with award-winning author Mark Haddon (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time) about Ellcock’s new book All Good Things: A Treasury of Images to Uplift the Spirits and Reawaken Wonder

Opening up on the vast and diverse selection of curated public domain imagery he has become renowned for on Facebook, Ellcock will take us on an adventure through the intricacies of artistic selection and display in the internet age. Sharing his own discoveries—from found artwork in archives and libraries to little known collections of illustrations, photography and textiles—Ellcock will ask us to look afresh at a variety of visual works with the aim to uncover inspiration, elicit enjoyment and reawaken wonder.

The event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.

Book tickets here.

Omne Bonum – All Good Things coming this autumn

September is thrilled to announce that on 17 October we are publishing  All Good Things: A Treasury of Images to Uplift the Spirits and Reawaken Wonder, a incredible journey compiled by world-renowned image hunter and social media art curator Stephen Ellcock. 

Designed to stimulate and inspire, All Good Things is an exciting, eclectic collection of over 200 images from world-leading museums as well as lesser-known collections. In a finely calibrated procession of image, quote and myth, Stephen Ellcock leads us through the Realms of Creation – from the Stars to the Seas, the Natural to the Supernatural – to give us his extraordinary world vision. A treasure trove of 3,000 years of artistic creation, scientific enquiry and pan-global magical, philosophical and religious traditions.

The best of the world’s beauty, creativity and curiosity in a single book.

‘Stephen Ellcock brightens our dark world.’ Kara Walker, artist

‘Stephen’s collection of glorious images is one of the most reliably edifying and entertaining things in my day.’ Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
