As you know, Kate has two exceptionally talented brothers with whom she has collaborated throughout her career (latest word from Paddy below, more from Pad in HomeGround 77 the issue after the upcoming Aerial issue). Kate’s brother John Carder Bush has today published a darkly humorous novel, The Cellar Gang. We’ve been looking forward to this for quite some time. You can order the book and read all about John’s forthcoming written, musical and spoken-word works at his newly launched website www.johncarderbush.com. The book is available in a special limited edition of only 500 copies, the first fifty of which are signed and numbered by the author. Hardback and beautifully bound in linen, The Cellar Gang is printed on thick cream wove paper and comes with a ribbon marker – careful design which will come as no surprise to anyone lucky enough to own a copy of John’s previous publication Cathy. John says: “The Cellar Gang is available from today. I’m very pleased with the book itself – it feels good to hold, looks wonderful and I hope it will nibble its way into your hearts. Many thanks for all your interest in this project.” You can take a look at a large cover shot of the book here. As always with these very special items, and particularly in the run up to Christmas, the advice is – get your order in fast!
I’d like to know the printing business used to make “The Cellar Gang” book out of linen. For I am looking to print myself a hardcover book made out of linen with scritta paper, and so I am in search for a business who can provide so.
