Ben Okri launches The Magic Lamp

Last night, Apollo were delighted to launch Ben Okri and Rosemary Clunie's new book, The Magic Lamp, a new collection of meditations and stories from the Booker prize-winning author, and illustrated by painter Rosemary Clunie.

 

 The occasion was marked at the gallery at Waterstones Gower Street with a fascinating conversation between Ben and Rosemary, chaired by editor Maggie McKernan, surrounded by paintings from the book. 

 

 

Twenty-five stories, twenty-five paintings, five years to write, ten years to paint. The Magic Lamp is an extraordinary collaboration between artist and artist: the Booker Prize-winning writer Ben Okri and the painter Rosemary Clunie. Together they have created a world, and peopled it with dreams.


The Magic Lamp is available now in hardback and ebook
