Traveling in Place
A History of Armchair Travel
It is rumored that Linda Quilt was born in a small village near Stratford-upon-Avon, which has since vanished mysteriously from the maps of Great Britain. German poet and editor Hans Magnus Enzensberger was so impressed when he received Quilt’s unpublished manuscript in the mail, that he found a famous illustrator for her book and shepherded it to publication. Michael Sowa paints pictures and illustrates books; his collection of animal portraits, Arche Sowa, was published by Sanssouci.
