The second book, this was commissioned after the success of the book on the park. I took a year taking photo’s of the town and it’s surrounds. Whenever I do a book I do all the research and writing myself and this really helps get ‘into’ the place. I start to look at the buildings in a completely different way when I know their history. With Richmond it was particularly the high street, I used to just look in the shop windows but I started to look up as well and see the remnants of the towns tudor origins in the architecture. Richmond also did well selling nearly as many copies as the park book but that too is now out of print.
