Sometimes during a visit to a museum you walk past beautiful objects but they make little human connection. You nod. You move on.
26 Treasures brings together the work of more than a hundred writers who each wrote a personal, emotive, response to an object in a museum, using exactly 62 words.
Why 62 Words? The organisation that brings these writers together is called 26. 62 represents 26 in reflection, and this book is the first ever collection of 'sestudes': a new literary form that challenges writers not to waste a word.
We hope these words make you pause, think, and take a closer look.
