From Greece

“As is the case with every single book from Easy On The Eye publishing, the quality is incomparable, Graham Bonnet – The Story Behind The Shades is no exception…” Lovely review from one of the biggest Greek rock music sites (rockpages.gr) which can be read in full on our review page. It’s so good when people really get what you’re trying to achieve.

In action!

Nice photograph sent by Jonathan Fogerty of the spinal-cord injury charity Spirit, presenting copies of the Easy On The Eye book to staff at the Oswestry spinal-cord injury Centre. Jonathan has flagged the story up on the Spirit website.

Nice to see one of our books ‘in action’ as it were! They will be used by staff and patients at the centre.  The book is now being distributed through bookshops and regular online sellers, having been originally mail order only to the medical profession as it were.  There are discounts for NHS orders.

Big Mama Thornton

Here’s another great (albeit it pre-restoration) shot from the upcoming book of Brian Smith’s blue photographs: Big Mama Thornton, who he photographed backstage in Manchester on a Blues package tour in 1965.  We’ve been able to scan this from the original negative. I assumed the others were lost but no; “I only took the one photo, film was expensive as a young lad!” You can read more about the book on the site, and the photo also appears on the book designer’s own site with a sideways look at the outfit!
