Artist filmmaker Matt Hulse’s newly revived and revised edition of deaf Scotsman James Duthie’s rare journal I Cycled into the Arctic Circle (1951) brings the cyclist’s original text into play with the filmmaker’s own frank reflections on the complicated 13-year journey that led to his film adaptation Dummy Jim (2013). Extracts from Hulse's original and largely unseen screenplay, recipes, new critical writing from Amanda Game, Sarah McIntosh, Chris Fujiwara and Gareth Evans, location stills photography from Ailsa McWhinnie, Samuel Dore and Ian Dodds, plus a newly commissioned poem from Aberdeenshire's John Mackie. Communications between Hulse and his many creative collaborators - without whom the kaleidoscopic project would never have seen the light of day - complete this rich volume. It's a proper book. 304 quality pages, hard cover, thread-sewn, offset litho. A beautiful object. A wonderful journey. This fully illustrated, annotated collector’s edition numbers just 500 copies. Created by Alice Smith, ]bracketpress[ and Matt Hulse.
