A Liver & Lights Compendium
Gleaned from various Liver & Lights publications, 1996 - 2016,
as written, Illustrated and performed by
with assistance from
Bones & The Aft
Published by Bookartbookshop; a brand new Liver & Lights Compendium paperback
containing texts, poems, lyrics and songs from Liver & Lights 24- 54 (1996 - 2016), being a
comprehensive selection of those lyrics made notable in performance by Bones & The Aft and The After Rabbit.
The book will also be liberally illuminated, both full page and text-sprinkled..
The Liver & Lights Chronicle was started by John Bently and friends in 1983,
beginning life as a sort of manifesto and evolving over the 33 years
of its existence into a lifelong exploration of the book as a medium and a highly personal,
eccentrically illuminated chronicle of our peculiar lives and times,
with particular reference to a mythic London wherein the author resides.
Only the first hundred copies of this book will be numbered and
signed and contain a signed three colour foamcut print and a cd copy
of the recent bones and the aft album The Rafter Habit.
These will available to subscribers from the end of October at a cost of
£14.99 per copy plus £2 P&P (postage free for multiple copies)
