Poo. I left a comment, and something crashed on my browser, and it has disappeared, I think. Alas. Here goes again!

This is really delightful. :) Thank you for sharing from the book dummy! I love to see the creativity involved in the making of the book. I really do want to get my hands on a copy. I'll email you about how to get my hands on a signed one with an illustration. :)

Was the book dummy a Moleskine or did you create one yourself? I'd like a nice blank book about that size and shape to mess about in. Not sure what just yet, but I think I need a blank book about that size and shape. It's calling my name... :)

Congratulations on all your illustrative and creative success of late! I think the framed, limited-edition run is a *great* idea, and priced just right for the artwork you've done. Of course, it's still too expensive for my unemployed self (*sigh*), but I'm positive you will have many takers!

Thanks again for posting this.

(Whoops. I just realized with posting the comment above that it was "my bad." I forgot about entering the Captcha code at the end of the posting process, and went off to answer an email and also write to you about a copy of the book before completing it. Silly me. :)~)


I have that problem all the time - though I should be used to it by now.

I usually use Moleskine sketchbooks in all sizes but the book I used for the Tate work was actually a dummy of the final book (publishers usually order a blank mock-up of the book from their printer so they can tell what final copies will look like and check for problems). As the paper quality is so good I found I could just draw directly onto it.

Thanks for letting me know! That's cool that the dummy was of such great quality.

Also, I tried to send you an email re: a copy of the book to the email that's listed on your site here (which is an AOL one) and got a mailer-daemon bounceback on it. Is there a better email to use? Or, if you like, send me a message from a good email for you (mine should show up for you as a commenter, right?) and I'll forward the message I originally wrote to the good email. Thank you. :)


Hi - am emailing you right now so you should be able to get in touch with me - check your spam!

Just received my copy: delighted! I intend to do some of the walks, despite your health warning.

When I took early retirement, I began a project to write a guidebook to London riverside pubs,(which included the Black Friar) but ended up with me getting fairly immobile, then not being able to read my notes.

Now in my mind's eye , I see this work with Badaude-style drawings instead of slabs of print, reborn and glorious.( I'm not trying to pitch the idea: the mere re-visualisation is so intense that it has taken on a kind of personal reality with no need of objective correlative).
