Green Man Book

Canterbury old post office 1c of 7

Nina Lyon is writing a book on The Green Man and has asked for some help from our members and readers of this blog:

“I’m writing a book, due to be published next year, about the Green Man in contemporary society and what it means about our relationship with nature and religion. I’m not trying to write an established history, but to find out how this ancient image has developed into its use today, and that depends entirely on the people who use it. I’m looking for people who identify with the Green Man, personally or politically or spritiually, to find out what their relationship is with it as an image or idea. I would be extremely grateful if you could drop me a line for a very brief chat by phone or email: nina_lyon@fastmail.fm – thank you!”
