Many of us enjoy walking along a familiar path. Our spirits lift as our mind settles and our soul is restored by the beauty of the natural landscape.
In Path, a solitary figure walks along ancient pathways, between slender trees, across open hills. As the earth offers up support and reassurance, they walk through uncertainty towards an understanding that they – we – are not alone, but part of the fabric of the world.
With evocative photography and illustrations inspired by the pathways across the South Downs, Path is a contemplative journey written in poetic prose that embodies the steady rhythms and joy of walking, and captures our reciprocal relationship with the land.
Now in paperback, Path features a brand new preface written by the author, Louisa Thomsen Brits, that reveals the unexpected journey she undertook just days after the book was first published in 2018 – and how her own words helped her to navigate a different kind of path through diagnosis and treatment towards healing.
