SOUL MANIFESTOS AND PIECES OF JOY
Steve Thorp’s small, poetic essays are written against the backdrop of conflict in modern culture, politics, economics, ecology and psychology. Each piece stands alone but together the collection coalesces into a gentle, intuitive polemic that seeps into the consciousness. The small manifestos are written for wonder, wisdom, joy, love, and openness - and for the common good. They describe an alternative and grounded response to the material world, a way in which we might live our lives with depth and soul. This is a thought provoking collection and a whole-hearted approach to the crisis facing humans on earth.
Each section in this beautifully designed sofback begins with a poem, and the book is illustrated throughout with Ruth Thorp's evocative line drawings. Find more of her work at www.ruththorpstudio.co.uk
