Fishy busi­ness

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

THE new edi­tion of Crooked Lines, Do­minic Gar­nett’s book of fish­ing tales, is bound in sus­tain­able fish­skin. A col­lab­o­ra­tion with Devon artist Kari Furre, each in­di­vid­ual copy is a hand­made work of art, com­bin­ing skills from cen­turies-old cur­ing meth­ods to modern book­bind­ing. The first cov­ers are made from nat­u­ral, dyed Ice­landic salmon skin, but fur­ther ver­sions will use other fish, in­clud­ing cod and wolf fish.

The artist has cre­ated all kinds of art and or­na­ments us­ing ev­ery­thing from plaice to shark­skin (www. kar­i­furre.co.uk). A few of the rare signed col­lec­tor’s edi­tion are avail­able from the au­thor’s web­site (www. dg­fish­ing.co.uk) and the stan­dard first edi­tion (£9.99) and il­lus­trated Ama­zon Kin­dle edi­tion (£4.99) are also avail­able via the same site.
