Dawn of the Unread

Calm down, it’s only an apocalypse…


When the dead go unread because libraries are closing down, there’s gonna be trouble. Sillitoe, Byron and Lawrence are turning in their respective graves and will soon be returning to Nottingham in search of ‘booooooks’. Trouble is, the only places that seem to be stocking fiction is Tescos and they don’t fancy snacking on the latest celeb autobiography as it isn’t very nourishing. They need something more substantial. A more balanced diet. We have a cunning plan on how you can help save them but you’ll have to wait a bit to find out how…

Dawn of the Unread is an interactive graphic novel which will be made available across media platforms. It will feature Hunt Emerson, Michael Eaton, Alison Moore, Nicola Monaghan, Andy Croft and many other writers and cartoonists. It will be released as a serial for one year, starting on October 4 2013.

It’s an attempt to celebrate some of the great literary figures and intellectuals from Nottingham who are in danger of being forgotten if proposed library cuts go through and independent book shops keep closing down. In 2012, 7% independent book shops disappeared from the high street, with the total down a third since 2005. Authors are only able to live on in the minds of new generations if there is access to their ideas. We must make the library a fortress, or else the dead will go unread and forgotten forever…

  1. Pretty great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished

    to mention that I’ve truly enjoyed surfing around your blog

    posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I

    am hoping you write again soon!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Appreciate it

  3. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was

    good. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re

    going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  4. This is a website that costs about £20 a year. You can get a free website through wordpress. It’s really simple to use and shouldn’t cost you anything more than time. You can pay for different types of format etc but even then it’s only around $50-100.
