‘Manual for Marginal Places’ is a textbook for exploring the peripheral, acknowledging marginal acts as well as marginal places, with text by Emma Cocker and images by Sophie Mellor and Simon Poulter.The reader is invited to move away from the centre, examining the borderlands and reflective spaces of the margins. ‘Manual for Marginal Places’ arose from ‘Urban Retreat’ – a series of artists commissions, activities and events reflecting on the use and value of urban/rural landscapes curated by Close and Remote in Barrow-in- Furness in 2010.
