Have a look at these works by John Craske, a Norfolk fisherman who spent much of his life in a 'stuporous state'. During the periods when he could do a little, he painted and, when that became too tiring and difficult, made embroideries because he could do them lying down.
Julia Blackburn has written a wonderful, haunting book about Craske and her search for him and is coming to talk about it on 18th May at 7pm in Woodstock Town Hall. This is a very special talk for us, to celebrate the start of our eighth year of bookselling in Woodstock.
For more information about Craske and the book see here.
