    Mersey Minis
    Perhaps more attuned to the usual canon than the contribution to Liverpool's 800th anniversary discussed yesterday, nevertheless the Mersey Minis series of five books for 2007 look like they'll be very lovely indeed. The first one (pictured) has just been published, and if the writing matches the design it'll be a treat.

    Each of the books has a theme and for the one to be published and distributed around the city as a free gift on Liverpool's birthday, 28 August, the publishers have chosen the theme Longing, and are inviting contributions. Their blog provokes writers to 'break free from a conventional style of travel writing, reportage or memoir'. So there's a couple of my very peripheral walks on their way to the competition judges today.
