A British author and academic, Robert Macfarlane is an author of prize-winning books on the themes of memory, landscape, nature, environmentalism and travel and regularly writes for publications including the Guardian and the Times.
Strikingly original, his writing often blurs ideas of genre and form and he regularly collaborates with artists, film-makers, photographers and musicians. His first book, Mountains of the Mind won the Guardian First Book Award and the Somerset Maugham Award.
His other works include, The Old Ways, Landmarks as well as The Lost Words and The Lost Spells, children’s books of nature spells created in partnership with artist Jackie Morris.
Robert Macfarlane is Reader in Literature and the Geohumanities in the Faculty of English at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. His book about subterranean spaces and deep time, Underland, came out in 2019.
The unmissable sequel to bestselling, award-winning, multi-adaptation hit The Lost Words. Kindred in spirit to The Lost Words but intriguingly new in form, pocket-sized gem The Lost Spells introduces another beautiful set of spell-poems and artwork by formidable creative duo Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.
