Congratulations to John and his photo book 'Hill Farming Country : Farming and Landscape in the Uplands of Northern England' for winning this months book of the month

Hill Farming Country

"It's really great to get 'book of the month' from BobBooks! I did an earlier version of the Hill Farming book with another book company, but the quality was very poor, which was when I switched to using BobBooks on the recommendation of a friend. I've done three books with the company now and I have to say that the print quality has been consistently superb and the books arrive very quickly too.

"I am working on a long-term personal photo project to document hill farming, a subject that fascinates me. It started with photographing livestock markets and agricultural shows, but I am now working with individual farmers to record all sorts of activities, for example sheep gathers, shearing, lambing and dipping. The project now encompasses shows, sales, activities in the hill farming calendar, portraits, landscape, seasons and architecture. Doing this expansive photo book has enabled me to set out the various aspects of the project in context and it has been very useful to be able to show farmers what I doing in the course of the project. This in turn helps me gain more access to photograph more farmers and their work." - John Bentley
