The Lost Book of Adventure by Teddy Keen, Stanfords, Thursday, 01. August 2019

The Lost Book of Adventure: from the notebooks of the Unknown Adventurer, with author/illustrator Teddy Keen 
 
‘If you are reading this, it means my notebooks have been found. I am leaving them here at camp for safekeeping...’
 
Join us at Stanfords with author/illustrator Teddy Keen and prepare yourself for life in the wild with this one-of-a-kind adventure book! Teddy first discovered the famous lost notebooks and treasures of the unknown adventurer whilst deep in the Amazon jungle — before having them shipped home and painstakingly restored and edited together to create The Lost Book of Adventure!
 
Part talk, part interactive adventure show, part exhibition, Teddy will be bringing the book to life, and unveiling some of the secrets of The Unknown Adventurer – who was he? What did he discover? Did he really use his finger as Piranha bait? Using this beautiful book’s unique combination of thrilling adventure stories, practical survival skills and amazing artwork, Teddy will show you how you too can become an adventurer.
 
‘REMEMBER: be good, be adventurous…and look after your parents.’

About the author:

Teddy Keen is the editor and compiler of The Lost Book of Adventure. In 2014 during a trip to the Amazon, Teddy (himself an illustrator and outdoor enthusiast) came across a sealed metal container in a remote hut on the banks of the River Jari. The contents turned out to be the lifetime’s work of an unknown artist adventurer. Alongside the notebooks, sketchbooks and other belongings was a letter which appeared to be written for the benefit of two young family members. Teddy lives in London with his family.
