Spaces of silence
on 17 September 2009
I don't know whether Ben Morley wrote the spaces first, then filled them with the feelings and then just framed them with his words, but it seems to have worked. A simple story from a different perspective acts as a refreshing antidote to the perpetual doom and gloom of the fear within the world.
The artwork matches the vibe and the zeitgeist of a story that allows the reader to fill the spaces themselves, and the words and pictures mould together to create the feelings that float from the book.
Space that allows you to think - that's a neat trick.
