The White Road

New Website

To celebrate the publication of The White Road, we launched a new website dedicated to the book.

The website can be found at, where visitors have the chance to read the opening passage, glance through a beautiful gallery of images from the book, catch up on national and international reviews for The White Road and learn more in our Resources section; an online platform for videos, essays written by Edmund and an extensive bibliography of material relating to his research.

The website is also the place to find out more about everything that's going on. There is an events page detailing all the talks, appearances and book signings Edmund is involved in, as well as more information about the project curated by Edmund last year at the Royal Academy called white, and a concert series which tool place with Aurora Orchestra called On White.

Please do stop by and have a look.
