Content to gather by Joe Devlin and David Mackintosh – Published by Aye-Aye books 2018. 52 pages with b&w illustrations
Content to Gather brings together the writing of Joe Devlin and drawings David Mackintosh. Devlin, who is known for using the library as his studio, often finding his material in the margins of long forgotten tomes, has for the first time turned to the written word himself. His prose reads like snatched reminiscences, fleeting observations of human adventure where characters incidentally connect and find meaning. Mackintosh’s stream of consciousness drawings, like Devlin’s writing, elevate the detail of chance to art.
