I have to admit I didn’t even know there was a Manchester Literature Festival until recently when I came across it on the web. And as I always love a good book (no, I don’t do Kindle – yet) it got my attention. I was pleasantly surprised when I downloaded the events brochure and found that it is not just the usual listing of dates and events but more like an activity book-style event brochure. The brochure features various puzzles from ‘join the dot’ to ‘spot the difference’ referencing to different events during the festival. Here are some examples:


Marking the 50th anniversary of a man and his iconic speech


Taking a literary journey across America


She could have stepped out of a Jane Austen novel

The puzzle campaign was created by design studio MARK with help from local artist Simon Henshaw and includes posters, postcards and print ads.

The Manchester Literature Festival runs from 7th – 20th October 2013 and you can find more information and the complete events brochure here.
