“When I met the Devil I was twelve years old. I’d just started holding hands with Holly from the top end of the village and, even though I thought she was only messing me around when she said that she’d be my girlfriend, I still went along with it. That’s something else about this time of my life (the bit about Holly, I mean) but I’d say you probably want to hear about the Devil, don’t you?”

The Bygones
is a glimpse into a specific part of the world, at a specific time of what will soon be called history. These small stories range from the very real to the very bizarre.

JULIA SOBOLEVA
Specially commissioned artwork by the Latvian born, UK based artist. Limited editions only.

ADVANCE PRAISE:

"Gibson brings a modern and bittersweet edge to his renderings of The-mostly-Midlands; The Bygones is an electric debut collection, and a spellbinding departure from the norm."

Forthcoming…

Jim Gibson grew up in the feral plains of an ex-mining village, Newstead. In the shadow of Lord Byron’s grandeur, he was part of a hand-to-mouth existence that was (and is) ignored by the media. Editor and co-founder of Hi Vis Press, he tries to encourage the lesser voiced truths of our society. The Bygones is his first full length collection.

Julia Soboleva is a Latvia born, UK based mix-media artist. Her process involves painting and collage on found photographic imagery, creating mysterious narratives with ominous overtones and absurd humour. Ms Soboleva has illustrated book covers for Bloomsbury, British Film Institute, amongst others. Witty Books published a book of her artwork in 2021. She obtained a Master’s Degree in Illustration at Manchester School of Art in 2018, and is now working as an educator and freelance designer.
