An Exeter Mis-Guide

Full Company with Tony Weaver

Exeter (published September 2003)

An Exeter Mis-Guide takes the form of a guide book. It suggests a series of walks and points of observation and contemplation within the city of Exeter. It is no ordinary guide book. It is guided by the practice of mytho-geography, which places the fictional, fanciful, fragile and personal on equal terms with 'factual', municipal history. Author and walker become partners in ascribing significance to place.

Many of the walks were developed in conjunction with Exeter citizens, creating a variety of perspectives on the way we negotiate the city. We aimed to help local people to discover the unknown side of their city and to celebrate each person's unique sense of place.
