Book - The Illustrated History of Derby by Maxwell Craven. I provided the cover photograph for this book!

Back in 2007 I was asked by Breedon Books if I would supply a photograph suitable for the front cover of a new Derby book that had been written by local historian Maxwell Craven. I was so chuffed that they asked me to do this. Even today I still see my photograph adorning this book in local stores and it makes me smile.

Here is a photograph I took of the window display at Waterstones bookshop on St Peters Street, Derby when it had lots of these books on display.

My photograph on the cover of books in Waterstones bookshop, St Peters Street, Derby.
The Illustrated History of Derby is availalable from Amazon and also local shops.

The image you can see on the cover is one I took on 7th July 2004 of the Cathedral reflected in the Derwent very early one morning. I would like to thank Breedon Books.
