Leon Conrad’s Story and Structure: A Complete Guide uses six primary symbols to tell the untold story of how story works. It outlines eighteen story structures and shows how they all contain optimal solutions to the different kinds of problems which give rise to each of them. The book outlines the first systematic application of the undeservedly little-known work of George Spencer-Brown in Laws of Form to the analysis of story structure, and aims to reveal hitherto unfathomed depths to narrative, demonstrate a much wider application of storytelling than is generally perceived and present story as a dynamic force of life.
The book is released in hardback as a signed limited edition (of 450 numbered copies) on August 10, 2022 and in paperback on November 1, 2022. There is also a pre-launch offer available at Conrad’s website.
