              A large-format, signed Collector's Edition of this literary and artistic meditation on the theme of night travel from two of our greatest contemporary creative talents. `The moon drives everyone mad - you know that, well enough. But this is no lycanthropic or otherwise spooky met...amorphosis: it's far stranger than that...' When Quentin Blake embarked on creating a set of new drawings on fantasies of travel, even he had not envisaged a series so sombre, so haunting, as Moonlight Travellers. These watercolour journeys through unknown landscapes capture, with unmatched skill, all the mystery and intrigue of the dead of night. A unique collaboration, this book brings Blake's macabre wit into dialogue with the imaginative insight of Will Self. With characteristic sharpness, Self mingles fiction, fact and flights of memory to transport the reader on a radical tour of Blake's mysterious lands. In Moonlight Travellers, two creative minds at the height of their powers connect word and image, darkness and light with our deepest sensibilities. In eight-wheeled contraptions and winged machines, they carry us on a trail of dreamlike journeys. After all, `there's nothing more prosaic - at least, at this end of human history - than a car journey.'

              Another idea which came from I don't know where, though I have drawn fans before, and they serve to emphasise gesture. These are drawn in a simplified style, and the costume is a mime artist's costume. In recent years I have found myself working increasingly in sequences of drawi...ngs which explore subjects and techniques which interest me. These sequences are the origins of the QB Papers; they vary in approach and tone, and between reality and fantasy. But I hope that in each of them in its own way will appeal to anyone who likes looking at drawings.' - Quentin Blake

              This is rather like the conversation pictures in that it shows the positions that people get into when reading - but it's more specific and observed in that it shows different characters and their individual reactions.
