How did books from your childhood feed your imagination?



Artist Tessa Waite will be in residence at The Story of Books during October and invites you to bring along a childhood book, or the memory of it, that shaped you in some way. Each book or memory will be recorded as part of a blog and will form an archive for others to share. Tessa will be using mixed media including collage, mono print and ink to create her own ‘picture books’ based on those brought or sent in to The Story of Books.


Visit Tessa at The Story of Books in Hay-on-Wye each Thursday this October, 10am-5pm, or send in your memory of a childhood book to: Tessa Waite, The Story of Books, 20, Castle Street, Hay-on-Wye, HR3 5DF, Wales.
