A History of Nearly Everything:The Great Rise & Fall of Sir Gavin Hawkly-Longfarthing by Reif Larsen

A History of Nearly Everything



An illustrated publication based on author Reif Larsen's weird and wonderful exhibition.


Detailed Description

Sir Gavin Hawkly-Longfarthing was perhaps the most prolific Scotsman of all time, though his work has largely been forgotten by both historians and the general public, no doubt due largely to his fractious relationship with the University of Dundee (then Queen's College, Dundee).  Born to a family of peat farmers on the island of Taransay in the Outer Hebrides, Hawkly-Longfarthing's talent was spotted early on at a science fair in Stornoway when he built a working bi-plane out of driftwood and old lorry parts.  His extraordinary and completely fictitious scientific career was revealed to the world by author Reif Larsen (The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet) in a highly popular and utterly baffling exhibition in 2015.  This publication features all the text and objects from the show plus a few things that never made it in!
