"Sovereigns, Madams and Double Whites"

"Sovereigns, Madams and Double Whites" - design by Graphic WordsThis 214 page book records memories of the market gardening industry of the Tamar Valley region (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), which lies on
the Devon / Cornwall border.

The book results from an extensive research project to record the industry
before its traces are lost, and an accompanying photographic survey
by acclaimed photographer Ted Giffords.

Working with local author Joanna Lewis, we developed a design to present
the fascinating text - composed of local reminiscences and anecdotes
with historical information - alongside the stunning black and white
photographs by Ted Giffords.

In addition to laying out the book and completing the typesetting and editing
photographs as required, we also created the face design for the CD included
with every copy, containing recordings of local voices telling their stories.

The book was awarded a Holyer An Gof prize by the Cornish Gorsedd Council, which praised its design and lay out.
