Painting Used for ‘Moving Worlds’ Book Cover

Moving Worlds Cover

Recently, one of my earlier paintings ‘Tram Between St. Peter’s Square & G.Mex, Manchester’ was used for the cover of ‘Moving Worlds: A Journal of Transcultural Writings.’ The book is edited by Corinne Fowler & Graham Mort and the contents include short stories, poetry, autobiography, articles and reviews. It’s release coincides with the Writing Manchester exhibition on 1st Floor, Manchester Central Library from 7 September – 17 October 2009. More info about the book including how to buy a copy can be found at the moving worlds website. I am told the image was chosen for the cover because it was felt its dynamic, surreal nature would work perfectly with the theme of ‘Imagining Elsewhere’ as encapsulated within the volume. Some of the writers featured within the volume include: Dinesh Allirajah, Muli Amaye, John Siddique, Shamshad Khan, Moniza Alvi, Ian Duhig, John Whale, Danielle Fuller, James Procter, Sarah Gibson, Andy Pollard, and David Lascelles.
