New Title: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Monday, October 20th 2014

The Alchemist is a philosophical parable that follows the young shepherd Santiago whose recurrent dreams of treasure send him on a journey across seas and deserts to find the meaning of his Personal Legend. It's an amazing book and we're very happy to be able exclusively to offer it in our unique one-page format.

A true modern classic, The Alchemist has been translated into over 80 different languages and has sold in excess of 65 million copies worldwide.

The design is a striking silhouette of the story's hero arriving at the pyramids, at the end of his journey.  Framed against the sun, he consults one last time his black and white decision-making stones, Urim and Thummim.  Who knows what the future will hold?

Cheltenham Literature Festival

Monday, October 13th 2014

Thank you to everyone who came to visit us at the Times Cheltenham Literature Festival. It was great catching up with existing fans and getting to meet some new ones. We had an incredibly busy 10 days in the Town Hall and look forward to being back next year.

We were lucky enough to get tickets for some of the best events of the festival, in particular Mark Haddon discussing his amazing book The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Apologies to anyone who attended that talk for the rather shameless self-promotion in which one member of the Spineless team indulged during the Q and A! Michael Morpurgo was another highlight although honestly it's hard to pick favourites from the incredible line-ups at Cheltenham.

One silly highlight for me was coming back from lunch to find this:

Yes, that's somebody posing for a photo next to some artwork that I helped create. Now who deserves a C for GCSE Art, eh?
