Super stoked to see Rob Flowers release his Festival Folk book on Cicada Books: close to our hearts having collaborated with Rob and the Museum of British Folklore on 'Cuckoo's Nest' at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, in 2016.
Simon Costin, director of the Museum writes the foreword.
Packed full of fun and interest for both kids and adults, exploring Folkloric traditions internationally. Not to be missed.
:A beautifully illustrated compendium of weird and wonderful festival costumes around the world.
All around the world there are little known local festivals, rooted in ancient pagan traditions. At the centre of these festivals are characters dressed in the most remarkable costumes imaginable. The Kukeri in Bulgaria wear enormous headpieces made of goatskin and The Burryman festival in Edinburgh features a man covered from head to toe with burrs and thorns. 40 remarkable festivals are documented in this offbeat, anthropological atlas that will delight children and travel enthusiasts alike.
Rob Flowers is an illustrator whose exuberant, urban graphics have graced the products of Camden Brewery, DC Shoes, House of Holland and the British Museum. This is his first book."
