The Dungeness landscape and the tale of how a timber-framed house was built there are the subjects of a mixed media project featured in this weekend’s London Arts Book Fair at the ICA. A collaboration between writer Vicky Richardson, graphic designer Chrissie Charlton and photographer Howard Sooley, the Dungeness Box has compartments containing booklets, postcards and found objects.

Priced £35, the limited edition boxes are available at art and architecture bookshops in London and the south east.
