As I may have mentioned once or twice before I LOVE stories, and for many years have been an avid collector of printed stories, from books to magazines to comics. I’ve always felt a huge part of the storytelling process starts right at the first glance at the object containing the story, and pulls you on a journey right though the cover and onto the pages of the book.

Throughout my career I’ve been lucky enough to work on a number of projects that allowed me to explore this particular aspect of a good story. Below is a selection of that work, from book covers of Victorian celebrities Eugen Sandow & Dame Clara Butt, to vintage lifestyle magazine In Retrospect (for which I served as Editor-in-chief and publisher) and the photographs and final spreads for self-published glossy coffee-table book Your Inspection Welcome.
