A CHATTERIS author and artist is releasing his first non-fiction book.

Richard Savage’s book “Beauty in Every Form” aims to answer the complex question ‘What is beauty?’

Contributors include photographers, artists, poets, academics, publishers, students, health workers, writers, models and dancers.

He has spoken to people from alternative life styles and people who have disfigurements and disabilities.

He said: “It is my belief that beauty is all around us every day, in the faces and bodies of both young and old. “I believe it transcends cultures, religions, ethnicity and social status.

“This book is comprised of the collective thoughts of more than sixty contributors exploring the subject.

Some are funny, some serious and some will move you deeply.

I hope this book will be a celebration of the human form in all its wondrous shapes and sizes, a myriad of unique diversity and fascinating individuality.

This is an open event and a number of the contributors to the book will also be attending.

There will be signed copies of the book available and an exhibition of artwork from the book will be on display. It is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and a number of online outlets.
