Richards — artist, writer, climber, raconteur- ponders what draws people to wilderness, and what future do such places have.

Dan's first book, Holloway, was written in collaboration with Robert Macfarlane and Radiohead artist, Stanley Donwood. The Beechwood Airship Interviews, his second, was an investigation of artists and their creative workspaces and stemmed from his building a 6-metre-long airship from wood whilst at Art School.

Last year Faber published Climbing Days, an investigation of the writing and climbing life of his pioneering great-great-aunt Dorothy Pilley

Outpost, Dan's fourth book, is set to be published by Canongate in Spring 2019. He's currently travelling around the outer reaches of the world to write it — researching and exploring unique cabins, huts and shelters, examining their different natures and purposes — way-stations, bunkers, beacons, and spartan spaces.

If the question at the heart of Climbing Days was ‘why climb mountains?’ Outpost will seek to answer the question of what draws people to wilderness? What can the spartan expedient architecture of such places tell us about the human condition? What compels us to go to the ends of the earth, and what future do such places have?
