Here at 4th Estate, we are excited to announce that we will be part of Central St Martins’ Festival of Applied Imagination on Thursday 10th December.
On 30th July Dan Richards’s The Beechwood Airship Interviews became the final book to be published by our sister imprint The Friday Project. A journey into the headspaces and workplaces of some of Britain’s most unique artists, The Observer called it ‘a wonderful jigsaw puzzle of a book’. Appropriately enough (considering this month’s blog theme is Festival), it’s absolutely brimming with musicians, artists, actors and comedians, including the likes of the Manic Street Preachers, Stewart Lee, Jenny Saville and Vaughn Oliver. It also features a titanic and tantalising Discography, a list which collects all the music Dan listened to or had recommended to him during the writing of the book. Here, Dan picks the 17 tracks on that list that matter to him most.
