"'The White Dobbie’ is a really memorable achievement: not only the words and images, but your clever and satisfying construction of the components, alternating between narrative and reflection; these and the lovely, clean, open design of the book, combining darkness and light.” - Kevin Crossley-Holland

Come have a drink on us and settle in while we introduce you to a mysterious, otherworldly figure and his spectral companion,  who once haunted the coastal roads across Morecambe Bay, and listen to the stories surrounding them.

The White Dobbie is the first in a new series: 'Storylore' that combines folklore, story, art and reflection. The series highlights folktales indigenous to the British Isles and the landscapes in which they are rooted. 

Jacqueline Harris is a writer, storyteller and theatre maker, creating work that explores the part that stories play in our lives. She also collects folktales and real-life stories as she travels, and collaborates with other artists to experiment with new ways of telling them. 

Marjan Wouda is a Dutch-born, Lancashire-based sculptor and artist of international standing. Her work often starts with a story. While ususally featuring animals, she is passionate about exploring the human predicament in a way that is thought-provoking.
