What is the speech of the chimera? Something more than a book. It is an art project that over time got caught on paper. A collection of images 'curated' by Jack Oughton, outsider poet and keen advocate of undiscovered art. It features images and decoration from a number of artists of wildly different styles and backgrounds, all recruited by Jack to illustrate the chimera's speech.
When Jack put out his advert, all manner of people responded. The work was completed by Jack sending fragments of his poetry to various artists and getting them to follow whatever artistic ideas the words inspired. The result was completely unpredictable, and the kind of project you can only get away with on print on demand! Though uncommercial from the start, all proceeds from the book are to be donated directly to Cancer Research UK.
Fans of new poetry, illustrative styles and the bleeding edge of contemporary art need to own this book for themselves . Sometimes funny, sometimes insane, It may not be to everyone's taste but the speech of the chimera is truly an authentic and fearless exploration of the human spirit.
