Proof Positive

An exciting-looking package arrived today and inside were the first proofs of my new book, ‘A Country of Larks’. I’ve got digital prints too of course, but there’s nothing like seeing your words ‘in the flesh’, so to speak. Now for a weekend of proofreading…

Can you judge a book by its cover?

Can you judge a book by its cover? I very much hope so, as the cover of my forthcoming book (published by Bradt in April), with linocut artwork by the very talented James Green Printworks captures the Chilterns beautifully. I found James after I saw the gorgeous cover he did for this year’s edition of the English Heritage handbook, and happily Bradt agreed to commissioned him.

My book has also also magically appeared on Amazon and is now available for pre-order. It’s all becoming frighteningly real!
