YEOVIL LITERARY FESTIVAL EVENT
Alex Woodcock - King Of Dust
Alex Woodcock is a writer and stonemason from the south coast of England. After completing a doctorate on medieval sculpture he worked for six years at Exeter Cathedral in Devon, where he helped repair the internationally significant west front.
King of Dust is a craftman’s personal journey through the landscapes and the ancient sculpture that first inspired him to pick up tools. Weaving together the archaeology of the stones and their medieval carvers with his own life, and those of the writers and artists similarly drawn to them, the book is meditation on craft, the importance of the handmade, and the transformative power of art in our lives.
