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
‘Here are three simple steps to help you feel better about the world: read Heather Buttivant’s marvellous book, grab a pair of wellies and get yourself to a rocky shore … [a]thoughtful, enlightening and entertaining read.’
