An Arctic Alphabet

Big news for Valentine's Day! A new version of my award-winning artist’s book How To Say ‘I Love You’ In Greenlandic has just been published by MIEL editions. It is gratifying to see the Arctic Alphabet taking Greenlandic words around the world - to America, Bahrain, Bangkok, Denmark, Spain - and even back to Greenland! 
‘In this beautiful publication Campbell magically manages to evoke the icy North through the warmth and power of the Greenlandic language. Exquisite pochoir prints sit alongside hand-printed type – a perfect marriage between image and text.’ — Emma Stibbon RA
“a book that is not only beautiful but full of joy, love & quiet intensity” — Oliver Clarke, Collinge & Clark Books
Further details, including how to order a copy, can be found here.  
To celebrate the launch, I’ve written a short essay on melting ice and changing language in the arctic which appears on the MIEL blog.
