Julian Borra - Author

Julian Borra was educated at a Catholic College for Boys; which explains an awful lot. That he attended Art College explains a little more. That he has worked in the creative industries of design and advertising for the last twenty years certainly explains the rest. He has spent most of those years amusing himself in various dull meetings by appending various sketchbooks and notepads with non-sense. The Man Who Put Words on Birds is one of those very pieces of non-sense: a small journey to the source of what makes a sentence fly – and why.

Julian is and has been a highly successful advertising copywriter, and that currently he is based at Saatchi and Saatchi in Charlotte Street. He lives in Bayswater with his wife and young son Louis, and he loves Kensington Gardens
