The Prehistoric Peak
Full colour throughout
14.5 cm x 21.0 cm
Price: £35 + p&p
THE PREHISTORIC PEAK is a practical guidebook to discovering and exploring the Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments of the Peak District. Originally researched, written and designed as part of my MA in Communication Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in 2009, the intention is not to explain their origins, but to encourage everyone to go and see them for themselves as they are today. After all, they are located in some of the most spectacular landscapes available to us in Britain today and make fascinating destinations for journeys that are about experiencing all the wonders of the world around us.
I visited each site several times in order to record each one through photographs, ground plans of what can be seen today, custom maps with step-by-step, clear, concise directions on how to find each one and all the necessary GPS and OS grid references.
It also includes practical advice on how to make your exploration of the Prehistoric Peak as pleasurable and safe as possible as well as a comprehiensive list of all other known sites in the Peak District along with their OS grid reference.
I have chosen to go the route of self-publishing the work through lulu.com. For complete information, previews and to order a copy, please visit:
Again, while I am very pleased with the overall quality lulu.com offers, my only concern is the price in that it is higher than I would really want to pay myself, but this unfortunately, is one of the drawbacks of a print-on-demand/self publishing route.
