Book description

‘From here there were hills. Frown lines appeared on the maps from the effort of reading contours; crow’s feet, wrinkles; squiggly roads, zigzagging rivers. Geography squashed up close.’ (Jason Goodwin)


FlatPack/PlaskaPaczka is a book of component parts: journeys, sketches, photographs and notes; connections and associations; art and designs.


FlatPack/PlaskaPaczka can be read in a number of ways – as four separate books, as a series of larger narratives or as a random series of connections and statements.


FlatPack/PlaskaPaczka is an Artist Book, a catalogue and an exhibition that will be presented in Wroclaw (Poland) and Edinburgh (Scotland) in 2007.


FlatPack/PlaskaPaczka was made by an artistic team including:

Gordon Brennan, an internationally recognised artist and book-maker who teaches in the School of Drawing & Painting at Edinburgh College of Art;


Jason Goodwin, who is the award-winning author of On Foot to the Golden Horn: A Walk to Istanbul, and other travel books.
