I had the 300+ page book crowd funded by Unbound publishing

BRIEF

This was a personal project and a labour of love.
It was based around 500 photographs I had taken
as a youth in the nightclubs of London in the early
80's. I designed it, persuaded Boy George, Gary
Kemp of Spandau Ballet and Steve Strange to
write forewords and commissioned Chris Sullivan
to scribe a worts and all text. The broadcaster
Robert Elms wrote the introduction and I
interviewed most of the leading protagonists
from this influential and highly creative scene.
It's the real insiders tale. The book got reprinted
and all 4,000 copies have been sold. Copies now
fetch good money on Ebay and Amazon
