Delighted with this generous and perceptive review of our book From Hill to Sea which appeared on Avocado Sweet this week. Avocado Sweet is an eclectic mix of interesting articles on Art & Design, Architecture, Music, Writing & Film and much more. It is well worth signing up for their weekly newsletters.
If on the off-chance you find yourself in Washington DC, you can find a copy of From Hill to Sea in The Library of Congress, the United States of America’s first established cultural institution and the largest library in the world.
We have been delighted with how far the book has travelled to date, with copies dispatched to Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and many countries in Continental Europe. We are very grateful that it now also has a permanent home in The Library of Congress.
A huge thanks to Phong Tran for facilitating this. If you want to discover all sorts of interesting music from around the globe, and his own mind-expanding musical projects, then follow Phong on twitter – @boxwalla.
