I had the 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
