About The Book of Apertures:

Set against the backdrop of our own existence, these pages house a collection of stories a collection of stories that peel back the covers of that other world, that world of emotions, forces and things, which have since the creation of time been forever lapping upon the shores of our own.

For the last two years our collective group of young, emergent writers and artists, have been hard at work. Arising from the relative obscurity that encircles each of our lives, this book has been born quite simply,out of our shared passion for storytelling.The central theme of the book focuses on exploring those unexplainable elements of life thatat one time or another, affect us all. As children particularly, we have all used our imaginations to conjure up explanations for the things that we didn't quite understand, and so, in creating this book, the writers and artists were asked little more than to develop this idea.Therefore, with an emphasis upon collaboration, containing fifteen short stories and nine poems by fourteen different writers, exhibiting forty-one pieces of original artwork by nine different artists, The Book of Apertures represents a series of explorations into the enigmatic nature of life, as viewed through each contributors personal aperture.
