Mat collaborates with Stephen Ellcock on new book

Updated: Dec 27, 2021


Mat has been working with Stephen Ellcock on a new book 'England On Fire: A Visual Journey Through Albion's Pyschic Landscape'.


The book shares more than two hundred carefully selected images ranging from medieval psalters, to photographs of seasonal celebrations past and present, to stills from iconic television and film, to depictions of the English landscape and soul from a wide range of artists through the centuries. The images are accompanied by texts by Mat Osman woven around the central themes of Ellcock’s choices, exploring magic and mazes, ghosts and gardens, shipwrecks and cities. These poetic renderings of a spectral isle together with Ellcock’s hallucinatory visual journey reclaim Albion as an eternally unhinged and rebellious magic kingdom – an England on fire.


The book will be published on 10th May 2022 and you can pre-order here
