Jawbone: The Autobiography of a Film

LIMITED EDITIONS ARE SIGNED BY JOHNNY HARRIS

Jawbone is that rare thing, a film that retains its magic the more you learn about it. Johnny Harris’s story of former amateur boxer Jimmy McCabe’s descent into alcoholism, homelessness and his attempt to escape these degradations though the sport he loves, is both familiar and alien.

Dotted throughout with intimate insights by Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, director Thomas Napper, trainer Barry McGuigan and others, Jawbone: The Autobiography of a Film merges photography and words, the seen and unseen, the familiar and alien. With its groundbreaking fight scenes, multiple award nominations and Paul Weller soundtrack, Jawbone’s difficult birth and cult status is honoured with this book.

Also includes a previously unpublished poem 'Hand Wraps' by Benjamin Myers.

"This photobook lookback at the 2017 drama is a compelling, passionate portrait of the time, sweat and serendipity that goes into contemporary British indie-making."
