Villager Jim’s Garden Wildlife, the first in a new series of books by wildlife photographer Villager Jim.

Birds, bees, and a whole host of other flora and fauna that share Villager Jim’s garden in the tiny Peak District village of Foolow, are featured in this stunning book of photographs. Bobbin Robin is just one of the regular visitors to the garden; she and her friends have a huge social media audience, with tens of thousands of viewers. Open up the book to see the daily goings on of these wildlife friends in some of Jim’s very best pictures taken in this beautiful setting. They illustrate the close relationship Jim has formed with some of the regular wildlife visitors to his garden. His quirky captions capture the mood and spontaneous character of each individual shot and are an essential element of what makes Villager Jim’s pictures so special.

The Road to Passchendaele – The Heroic Year in Soldiers’ own Words and Photographs, as featured in the Mail On Sunday, 18 June 2017.

The Road to Passchendaele by First World War historian Richard van Emden uses the winning formula of diaries, memoirs and original photographs taken on illegally-held cameras by the soldiers themselves. Richard tells the story of 1917, of life both on the line and behind it culminating in perhaps the most dreaded battle of them all, the Battle of Passchendaele.

The author has an outstanding collection of over 5,000 privately-taken and previously unpublished photographs, revealing the war as it was seen by the men involved, an existence that was sometimes exhilarating, too often terrifying, and occasionally even fun. Richard van Emden has interviewed 270 veterans of the Great War, and written extensively about the soldiers’ lives, as well as working on many television documentaries, always concentrating on the human aspects of war, its challenge and its cost to the millions of men involved.

ShipCraft Special: Flower Class Corvettes by John Lambert and Les Brown.

The ‘ShipCraft’ series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sister-ships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring colour profiles and highly-detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modelling section reviews the strengths and weaknesses of available kits, lists commercial accessory sets for super-detailing of the ships, and provides hints on modifying and improving the basic kit. This is followed by an extensive photographic gallery of selected high-quality models in a variety of scales, and the book concludes with a section on research references – books, monographs, large-scale plans and relevant websites.

This volume includes all the features of the regular series but the extent has been doubled to include far more detailed drawings of a class of ship that was built in huge numbers and in many variations. Mainstay of the Atlantic battle against the U-boats, Flower class Corvettes were used by the British, Canadian, French and US Navies.
