East Anglia is a region filled with history and mystery. From the vast skies of the isolated fens, to the desolate Suffolk coast via the church ruins and deserted settlements of Norfolk, it is an oft overlooked part of Britain, dismissed as flat and featureless.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Chris Spalton, creator of ‘The Eelman Chronicles’, explores a selection of tall tales, grim history and extraordinary events from East Anglia. Out in that tranquil rural environment are ghosts, witches and devils – and these are some of their stories, illustrated with Chris’s brilliant cartoon style drawings and photographs.
Conceived, explored and created during the covid pandemic of 2020, this book represents a connection with our history, our landscapes and ourselves. Immerse yourself in lore of the land, and awaken a new appreciation of the world that lies just beside and beyond us, whereever we may be.
