Description

Soaked in mist and old magic, Storyland tells a history of Britain and the politics of its people through medieval eyes.

Grounded in research, related as fiction, it begins before the Great Flood, with a troop of African giants quarrying stones. Later, the first migrants enter the Atlantic, calling themselves the Scoti and Britons, followed by the English and the Normans, crossing the North Sea.

Storyland is ancient Britain as you have never seen it before, mediated by the modern aesthetic of its linocut illustrations.

It is filled with places we know today and characters half-remembered: Lear in Leicester, Merlin in Stonehenge, Grim in Grimsby, St Columba on the River Ness. Storyland is a tale of legend, landscape and the yearning to belong.
