whilst not technically brilliant, they tell a story of a bygone age
on 5 July 2014
Flicking through this book when it arrived, I was surprised by pictures of varying quality with many I would have despatched to the editing floor. However, this book's value is both in the age of many of the colour pictures and their captions - Paul Chancellor really does bring the scene alive with his non-technical and informative commentary.
With 1 or 2 exceptions, these pictures (I dont think) have been published before and, whilst not technically brilliant, they tell a story of a bygone age. Having said that, there are some stunning shots as well like the T9 at Wadebridge and many more.
Sadly, this is printed in Bulgaria (cant we print these books in the UK anymore?) to Ian Allan's new book format which does not lend itself to reproducing large pictures, so plenty of white space on pages.
A book to be enjoyed.
