    From the publisher, Karsten Schubert / Riding House:

    This first ever queer history of St Ives weaves together biography with art and social history to shine new light on a pivotal era in the development of British modernism. At its centre is the sculptor John Milne (1931–1978), who arrived in the town in 1952 to work as an assistant to Barbara Hepworth.

    With a stark clean design and sober left-aligned text, the book uses two optical sizes of Chassi by R-Typography: Chassi S for the main text, and Chassi M for the cover. The book also uses Ludwig from Type By for the running heads, which makes for a pleasant contrast with Chassi.
