It’s that time of year when we’re feeling exhausted. We’re emotional. And we’re incredibly grateful.
We’ve been blown away by the response to Where You Are: printed book and its open access website. The amazing (and patient) writers, designers and programmers we’ve worked with have made our hearts throb and our brains ache.
And readers buying, playing, emailing and calling have put such smiles on our faces. We’ve sold out completely (with more on the way) and www.where-you-are.com has had 55,000 visits in just 4 weeks. Wow. More books en route and hitting UK stores again on 25th January. Feels glorious.
Meanwhile, we’ve been working closely with magCulture’s legendary Jeremy Leslie and some eye popping amazing writers and photographers on a new series of books we’ll be announcing in the new year.
And we’ve been singing Ding Dong for Don, our new Jacob Robinson adventure: photographer travelling around La Mancha in a camper van #CapturingDonQuixote under the design direction of Fraser Muggeridge for the epic new Visual Editions production of Don Quixote, out later next year.
Jacob, Fraser, and film assistant Remy’s Spanish caper was made possible through successful and exhilarating Kickstarter funding, and we thought how better to show our gratitude than to pair the cold London skies with the warm Autumnal La Mancha ones and share the very first behind the scene pictures of Jacob capturing Don Quixote in all its epic fantasy. Did we mention Bob on his bike who believes he is the “real” Don Quixote? More on that to come.
We’re shutting down for the holidays. With much eating, sleeping, slumming. Our warehouse will still be posting out your orders up until 23rd December and then again on the 2nd January. And we’ll be back up and running at Visual Editions HQ from 6th January.
Until then, love and happy wishes all round for another caper of a year full of twists, turns and many a Great Looking Story.
With love and very merry holidays to all.

PS With a big thank you to Fraser for sharing his La Mancha iPhone pics with us. And now you.
