Volume 2 – 75% complete

Posted by: Steve Kington – Date: Thursday, December 24, 2009

A review of the series led to the decision to increase the number of books in the series from seven to eight. The sheer number of London and Southern England posters clearly showed two books would be necessary to cover the area in the same detail as volume 1.  Read More

Volume 2 – Over half way completed!

Volume 2 is over half completed. I am currently in Hornsea, East Yorkshire after the wonderful journey down the Yorkshire Coast. The Chapters about Scarborough, Filey, Flamborough and Bridlington are packed with masterpieces. It has been so difficult to decide what to leave out, that I put most of the main selection back. There are now over 60 quite wonderful posters to see in these chapters. I am sure readers in East Yorkshire will be proud of the heritage I am showing. Just two are depicted below: both are rarely seen. Read More

Flurry of Activity

Posted by: Steve Kington – Date: Monday, October 5, 2009

September saw a flurry of activity and promotional work. Sales are good and steady. Following a week in Scotland, many of the Waterstones branches in Southern and Central Scotland have ordered the book. We had very good encouragement from Leith, Princes Street (East and West), Sauchiehall Street, Stirling, Ayr, St. Andrews and Dunfermline in particular. Read More

Encouraging sales in first month!

Posted by: Steve Kington – Date: Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Sales are very encouraging in our first month.  We have had several reviews, the latest being in the September Edition of Heritage Railway.  We also supported the success bank Holiday Steam Event at Didcot Railway, where “Tornado” was running. As I am a Member at Didcot, a good contribution from the sales of each volume has helped swell Great Western Society funds. We are planning to be in Scotland during September, supporting several Waterstones Bookshops, who are now taking the book. Read More

Response to the book has been very positive. We feature on the rear cover of the next Christie’s poster catalogue for their forthcoming poster auction in London in September. We have also been asked to attend the preview party, where the book will be available, and can be signed as required. Read More

The First Consignment

Posted by: Steve Kington – Date: Saturday, July 18, 2009

The first consignment of books arrived yesterday from Yorkshire. It really is a book from ‘The Top Drawer’ as termed by the Printers. The overall quality of the finished book is exceptional. It is the most important general railway poster book to have been published for almost twenty years, and the several hundred already-ordered copies give us a powerful send off.

We will be launching the book formally at the Great Central Railwayana Auction at Stoneleigh today. This coincides with the strong Scottish flavour from the auction itself, when many wonderful artefacts from the late John Bourhill’s collection will go under the hammer. With books to hand, we can now guarantee shipment within 24 hours of receiving orders via this website.

The extensive library of thumbnails put together over the past seven years is well over 15,000 but more are sought.   We are especially interested in the more unusual posters right through the 20th Century.   Some examples are shown below. Read More
