New book by John Michell (with Allan Brown)

I have just been lucky enough to have been loaned a hardback copy of John Michell's final work (he died this year on 24th April).

HOW THE WORLD IS MADE - the story of creation according to Sacred Geometry

By John Michell with Allan Brown

Published by Thames and Hudson

ISBN 978-0-500-51510-5

I will definitely be buying my own copy as it has 344 illustrations (341 in colour) many of which are hand drawn. It is a beautiful book and a fitting tribute to John Michell.

The book has been reviewed for Fortean Times by writer and musician Steve Marshall who also wrote the last interview with John Michell for the Fortean Times.

It can be purchased in paperback here:

Absolutely spiffing news, June (as old JM himself would say!). I'll definitely gerra copy - though probably won't go along with all his ideas. But I always loved the fella's stuff. (Have you gotta copy of his 'Earth Spirit' yet? cos there's a cheap copy of it, here: )

Jolly good show!
