Join us on Tuesday 12th of July, 6-8pm Tenderbooks (6 Cecil Ct, London, WC2N4HE) to celebrate the second print of Hives , 2400 B.C.E. – 1852 C.E. I’m gonna sign some copies, there will be drinks and chats about hives, bees and more!
“In 1852, the modern beehive was patented. Its subsequent success largely eliminated diversity in beehive design and led to the obsolescence of a varied history of alternative beekeeping techniques. Through an array of archival images, this book uncovers that forgotten history, offering a renewed perspective which challenges conventional historical linear narratives and creates a common ground for future beehive research.” Hives’ blurb co-written with the visual anthropologist Ellen Lapper.
