After a decade of supporting other writers, Finlay Lloyd has recently been turning some of its attention to the work of its founders. A Chink in a Daisy-chain, is by Phil Day, our designer and co-publisher. The book is a creative essay, cum personal reflection, on the relationship between Lewis Carrol’s Alice books, personal identity and argumentative opinion. It is the first in a three-book series Phil plans to write on the embattled nature of individual intellectual and creative autonomy.
Continuing our interest in the book as physical artefact, included in this handsome little book is a colour page and images from a drawing by Phil that recreates the style of Tenniel’s original Alice illustrations.
