This is the Place – Choose Love, Manchester is packed with poems and creativity for charity

This is the Place - Choose Love, Manchester is a new fundraising book conceived in the wake of the Arena attack, and it's now officially on sale. Perfect for your coffee table, and priced at £30, it contains unique illustrations, designs and photographs set against lines from Tony Walsh’s Manchester vigil poem.

Sixty-one Manchester creatives have each interpreted the poem visually. And the roll call includes world-renowned agencies and designers such as Peter Saville (New Order, Joy Division, Factory Records designer) and Malcolm Garrett (Buzzcocks designer). The book also contains personal messages from Tony Walsh and the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.

Profits from the book are going to Manchester based charities Forever Manchester, We Love MCR Emergency Fund and The Greater Manchester Mayor’s Homelessness Fund.
