taking our culture forward

A short interview about illustration, language and place with Jo Davies, author of the new Manx colouring book, Cool Mann.

Although a simple publication at first glance, Cool Mann has been years in the making and behind it is a great depth of thought and research into the benefits of colouring and creativity, as well as the importance of place and of language in that context. In the case of Isle of Man, there was no doubt for Jo Davies that Manx Gaelic had to be a part of this book presenting an exciting and modern take on the Isle of Man and its culture.
