Book of the Month - June 2020

Congratulations to our June's Book of the Month winner Gerry McShane with his book 'Looking at you in Zambia'

Fleeting Moments Forever Captured

"My wife and I have been taking safari holidays for the past 20+ years. Averaging 6,000 pictures each 2 week holiday the numbers added up. The acquisition of ever improving digital gear, and experience, resulted in the capture of some impressive pictures. Stored on a hard-drive to be taken out and viewed very occasionally seemed like such a waste  so I decided to have them printed in large book format so they could reach out to a wider audience. On the darker side, many of the subjects  therein could be very close to extinction in as little as a decade. Last but certainly not least, we are told that we all have at least one book within us and, although it turned out to be quite laborious it was a great ego boost to see the final result in print.

I had seen the quality of Bob Books at a photographic exhibition in the NEC Birmingham and been pointed in your direction by Audley Travel so that was my first stop. Having the software on my PC is a bonus but the selling point for me is the layflat large square book. Seeing your favourite image across a two page layout measuring almost 58mm by 29mm gives an incredible buzz.

P.S. The experience gained in doing the first book has paid off handsomely. I have completed the second in a fraction of the time; Looking at You in the Pantanal will make an appearance shortly." - Gerry McShane
