We have now opened a subscription list for Go Home On A Postcard, the Story of Walking Pictures. By joining this you will be kept up to date in the run up to publication which is now scheduled for Spring 2017. There is also a site dedicated to these vintage street photographs where you can find out more.
The Graham Bonnet biography is in the final stages we’re glad to say. Simon was busy adding nifty design touches to the layout last week: “It’s nice to be able to add a bit of extra interest to the design. Until the other week we had to be careful as the content was still subject to change, but now it’s just about fixed, I can start to sharpen the pages up – indeed actually generate the left and right page numbering for the first time. This took two days to sort out, as I really wanted to have each new chapter start on a right-hand side. One feature of the Easy book is the mass of photos and memorabilia throughout, which does create extra problems trying to match them to the text, but I really dislike those biographies which just stuff the photos into a block.”
We had a meet up with Graham and his manager backstage at the show in Manchester last weekend (they both refer to the book as The Dead Sea Scrolls, it having taken a good bit longer to finish than expected!), and watched the soundcheck. Graham was also interviewed about the book and his new album by Jon Kirkman there. We will go live with pre-orders very soon, and details will be sent to subscribers to the newsletter first.
