ABOUT The Dulwich Notebook
The Dulwich Notebook takes you on a beautifully illustrated adventure around South London's hidden gem, sharing more secrets than even SECRET LONDON could possibily manage.
Georgie Hoole, Deputy Editor of Secret London
'This terrific book is a model of how to write about place. Contemporary photographs combine with original text and elegant design to create something that feels rooted in its neighbourhood yet also seen through fresh eyes. Dulwich is fortunate to be chronicled in such an engaging way.'
Dr Cathy Ross, Honorary Research Fellow, Museum of London (September 2015)
'This is a handsome and comprehensive volume: Dulwich in all its facets, in one ‘huge’ snapshot.
It’s arty in the best meaning of the word: beautifully presented … it is surely destined to grace many a coffee table in Dulwich and beyond.’
John Turpin in Camberwell Quarterly, Winter 2015/2016
‘Old and new are juxtaposed to highlight change and continuity … a popular account, superbly produced and offered for sale at a remarkably low price …’
Bernard Nurse in The Dulwich Society Journal, Winter 2015
'There is a vast amount of information here, yet it is written, organised and presented in such a way that anyone can happily and easily go through the pages sequentially, or can choose to use the index to find any item of special interest ...
The excellent photographs by Torla Evans (Head of Photography at the Museum of London until 2013) not only complement the text, but also add extra context to it, helping to enhance the reader's journey through Dulwich's past and present.'
Richard Gilpin in the London and Middlesex Archaeological Society Newsletter, May 2016
'The photographs by Torla Evans, commissioned for the book, are excellent as is the selection of historic images, many of which will be unfamiliar. The Dulwich Notebook is an admirably complete account of Dulwich past and present ... and for a book produced to such high standards its price represents outstanding value.'
Laurence Marsh in the The London Topographical Newsletter, Spring 2016
ABOUT The Streatham Sketchbook
‘The book is superb and one the best books to be published on Streatham as a place – if not the best.’
Graham Gower, The Streatham Society

It is a very impressive publication that he is very proud to have his work in.’
