New Book Projects

 

As mentioned elsewhere, the various random pieces of writing and photos published on this website will, at intervals, be collected into actual physical volumes based around various themes. Before publication, though, we’ll put out a request for new pieces on the topic, so that the book will be a mix of old and new. At the moment, we have three such projects underway: one, with a working title of Smoke on the Water, will consist of words and images inspired by London’s rivers, canals, puddles and ponds; another will be a collection of tales about London’s music venues over the years (Night Bus To Camden); and the third will be a pictorial anthology cataloguing some of the more interesting things you can’t do in our wonderful capital (Please Do Not Touch The Walrus). More details about each project can be found by clicking on the appropriate title, and info on how to contribute is here.

Initially, successful pieces will be treated like regular submissions, i.e. they’ll appear on the home page and be filed under the WORDS & IMAGES tab according to author, subject matter and place. In addition, though, they’ll be filed away under the appropriate project heading, to await being printed and bound into something deliciously papery you can leave lying casually on your coffee table. And, once a new project is well underway, we’ll probably save most of the submissions solely for the printed version, rather than post them on the website, otherwise it wouldn’t be particularly exciting…
