“Following on from his place-aware study of the Cairngorms, Alec Finlay now turns his focus on rewilding the city. In collaboration with The Walking Library (Dee Heddon & Misha Myers), and poets Gerry Loose and Ken Cockburn, with artist Kate McAllan and photographer Mhairi Law, he has created a generous and innovative mapping project which is now available as a book: Wild City. This features photographic and written documentation of a program of participative walks, public readings and workshops exploring encounters with wild nature in the city of Glasgow – the greeny howe, reflecting on ecopoetics, rewilding in an urban context, the politics of green spaces and commons, and imaginative pathways to adapt to and reverse climate breakdown. The book is a blend of colour photography, maps and hand-painted texts, including a manifesto for a wild city, proposals, botanical resources, place-name translations, and collaborative word-maps that record the walks and readings that were conceived and led by the Walking Library.”
