As part of National Year of Reading acclaimed Adelaide author and illustrator D.M. Cornish will visit Cabra College on Wednesday 23rd May for a series of talks, book signings and a writing workshop. Cornish is the author of the well received fantasy series, Monster Blood Tattoo originally published by Omnibus Books here in Adelaide.
The author had been working as an illustrator for Omnibus before his detailed illustrated notebooks were discovered by the publisher Dyan Blacklock. His elaborately detailed world of The Half Continent takes readers on a journey into realms of monsters versus humans, bringing to mind the best work of Tolkien and Mervyn Peake‘s Gormenghast Trilogy .
