My photo-history booklets

I have used my historical photograph archive and early travel guides (also from my collection) to publish dozens of booklets, from e-photo albums to 150 page historical travel guides. Some titles are only available as printed books, some only as ebooks and some as both. You can visit my Amazon ‘Author’ page to see all of my booklets here.

If you do buy one and enjoy it, please leave an appropriate rating on Amazon. Many of my books have 4 and 5 stars, which is very satisfying but people can leave a review without buying or reading a book and, on one occasion, I got a 1 star rating because someone didn’t like my book title! Amazon refuses to remove such reviews and that hurts, given the effort that goes into each one.

Quality warning! These booklets are printed by Amazon using their print-on-demand technology and, as such, I have no control over the quality of the printed books. During the printing process, the photograph file sizes are significantly reduced and the resulting images are, in my opinion, a bit disappointing (see example below) ….. but lots of people like them!
