Laura Marling - #SFWAM

I'm so excited to announce that my collaboration with Laura Marling for a new book called 'Stories for Ways and Means' has finally been released!

The founder of Waxploitation Records, Jeff Antebi (Danger Mouse, Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells), had the idea to ask his favourite music artists and favourite contemporary painters to come together and collaborate on original children's stories for a benefit project.

I'm in such good company as #SFWAM also includes stories and images by Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Alison Mosshart, Kathleen Hanna and Dan Baldwin, just to name a few.

The money raised will go to children's literacy programmes and non-profit organisations worldwide, working to build schools and educate children.

'At the end of the Yard' is the finished piece of work to accompany Laura's story, 'The Old Oak Tree' and you can get your copy here.

#SFWAM will also be getting an exclusive release on Record Store Day 2017 (Laura's story will be narrated by Lauren Lapkus, from Orange is the New Black);

"Amidst all the musical offerings, Record Store day will also feature a few literacy treats. Stories for Ways and Means - a collection of kids tales, will get a vinyl release with narration from Danny DeVito, amongst others" -  Rolling Stone

**This is a book for (older)kids, featuring outré art, weird images, graphic displays of nasty stuff and 'cuss' words**!
