The Last Hug For While’ charts the last year and a half through a series of rhyming couplets and drawings that popped into my head following interactions, conversations and random thoughts.

All proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards native woodland and biodiversity projects. Over 10,000 trees have have been planted at The Barna Way to date.

It is joyful to be sending the book out around the world and as always I am happy to sign and dedicate them to your loved ones. These are first edition, colour, lithographic prints and I am very grateful to Pure Design for the beautiful graphic design.. I know not everyone uses PayPal so let me know what suits you (e.g. Revolut, bank details etc). I know some of you have asked for bigger quantities, so just email me and I am happy to give you a discount: info@lisafingleton.com

Just wanted to say THANK YOU so much to everyone who came to the book birthing of ‘The Last Hug For A While’. It was so lovely to have your presence a week . Over 90 people attended the ‘birthing’ (some of you despite intermittent coverage after Storm Barra!). If you would like to watch  or  share the recording, here is the link: https://vimeo.com/lisafingleton/thelasthugforawhile

I am very touched by the amazing response to the book and all of the lovely emails and messages I have received. Your love and support is so important for artists especially at this time. It is great to see you sharing on social media and feel free to record yourself reading your favourite poem and share with hashtag #thelasthugforawhile

 

Thank you

Lisa
