All Good Things : A Treasury of Images to Uplift the Spirits and Reawaken Wonder, Hardback Book

All Good Things : A Treasury of Images to Uplift the Spirits and Reawaken Wonder Hardback

Description

Stephen Ellcock has an international following who avidly await his daily Facebook and Instagram uploads and his carefully curated and sequenced albums of images.

His selections of little known and public domain imagery are uplifting and entertaining, drawing thousands of shares and comments.

Now, taking his title from the first ever encyclopedia in the English language All Good Things (Omne Bonum), Ellcock's new compendium of art and photography inspired by both the natural world and human endeavour will appeal both to his digital followers and our image-focused, solace-seeking times.

All Good Things is structured to evoke the medieval tradition of exquisite, illuminated books - beginning with the universal and travelling through the realms of sky, sea, earth, science and humanity before ending amongst the angels and monsters that have so preoccupied artists over the centuries.

Using found artwork from archives, libraries and little-known collections of art, illustration, photography and textiles, this is a glorious adventure; one that can be appreciated on many levels.
