An Exeter Mis-Guide
Full Company with Tony Weaver
Exeter (published September
An Exeter Mis-Guide takes the form of a guide
book. It suggests a series of walks and points of observation and contemplation
the city of Exeter. It is no ordinary guide book. It is guided
by the practice
of mytho-geography, which places the fictional, fanciful, fragile and
personal on equal terms with 'factual', municipal history. Author and
partners in ascribing significance to place.
Many of the walks were developed in conjunction with Exeter
citizens, creating a variety of perspectives on the way we negotiate
the city. We aimed to help local people to discover the unknown side
of their city and to celebrate each person's unique sense of place.
