  • The Art of Wanderingby Merlin Coverley

    Oldcastle Books 2012; US$ 12.49

    The Art of Wandering is a history of that curious hybrid, the writer as walker. From the peripatetic philosophers of Ancient Greece to the streets of twenty-first century London, Paris and New York, this figure has evolved through the centuries, the philosopher and the Romantic giving way to the experimentalist and radical. From pilgrim to pedestrian,... more...

    How has the idea of the South come to exert such a powerful hold over our imagination? Artists and writers have long felt the lure of the South. Goethe was revitalised by his journey to Italy; Nietzsche took flight southwards to begin his life anew, while DH Lawrence sought the health-giving southern sun in Sicily and Sardinia. The South Seas cast... more...

  • Psychogeographyby Merlin Coverley

    Oldcastle Books 2018; US$ 8.99

    A fully revised, updated and expanded edition of the bestselling guide Psychogeography.
