Keaton Henson | The Tallowmere Annual | Out Now


Keaton Henson's 'The Tallowmere Annual' is now available! Order your copy here.

The Tallowmere Annual is a hardback, special limited edition, mixed-media book, created as an ode to loss and remembrance. This beautifully presented chronicle tells the fragmented story of a town that never existed, Tallowmere, seemingly empty, showing only outlines of living things, words once spoken, and the sounds of distant mourning. The first of its kind, the book’s front cover holds an MP3 pack embedded with an audio jack for headphones and sound controls. Readers can plug in and listen to a recorded score created specially by Keaton as an accompaniment to reading the book and viewing the artwork.Keaton says of The Tallowmere Annual, “it is a collection of fragments, singing an elegy to the feeling of loss and something dreadful humming towards you. In spite of its physical audio element, it is a quiet book. Tallowmere is an unsettling place to be, but I have loved spending time there”.
