The book of the website

Well, nearly.

But I have written a book, for the very lovely Shire Publications, about World War Two Home Front posters, and my preview copy arrived in the post just before the weekend.

Home Front Posters Shire books Susannah Walker front cover

Should you wish,  you can pre-order it on Amazon right now.  Which of course you would very much want to do because it’s full of lots of  illustrations of lovely posters, like this one.

And this one too.

Along with a fair bit of me going on about the posters – and then oddities like this, which I just love.

Ministry of Information advertisement about information.  You couldn't make it up

Do you have too much information? Well here’s some information about having too much information.  These were very different days, my friends.

    Congratulations! Shire have made a lovely job of the cover, too … most important to have a cover to be proud of! Hope this leads to more exciting projects for you.

    Yes, they’ve made it look very handsome! I’m very happy with it. And if anyone has any exciting projects in mind, please do suggest them (especially if you are a publisher in possession of large advanced). Although I do have one or two of my own in mind too…

    And another book mentioned in the Telegraph today! In the column before reading your name I felt that the article had been strongly influenced by you and assumed the journalist had been reading your blog.
