The Wish Post Book by Mister Finch
The Wish Post is Mister Finch’s brand new self-published book which has been launched to coincide with his largest solo exhibition to date at YSP in June 2018.
Finch’s fairytale centres around the story of The Wish Post a magical kingdom of woodland animals whose job it is to collect and sort other creatures’ wishes, which are breathed into envelopes and posted in toadstool post-boxes. For one night each year, The Wish Post creatures have the chance for their own dreams to be whisked away by the wind and come true. Badgers in blue jackets, hedgehogs playing brass bells, thimble-tailed rats, elegant swans, long-eared rabbits, and dapperly-dressed moles – all life-sized – gather together to prepare the wishes for the wind, ahead of The Wish Post festival.
Follow the story of Poe the Mouse and a cast of curious creatures brought to life in this charming picture book.
With behind the scenes photography and notes and observations from the
The Wish Post is a tale for young and old and anyone who’s ever made a wish.
