Praise for Keepers of the Light
This sumptuous hardback, richly illustrated, will captivate readers far beyond those chiefly interested in Dorset, Midlands industrial history or lighthouses, ranging past the strictures of place and of people. The depth of research is breath-taking, creating a work of true scholarship, and yet it is still engagingly written with pace and colour. It feels like a lifetime’s work and yet the touch is light, so you can just as easily immerse yourself, or dip in and out. Like a jeweller's work table, every page is littered with gems. This is a book to read again and again.

Our Spake: Dialect and the Black Country
A full-colour hard-back book that celebrates the dialect of the Black Country. Produced as part of the ‘Where’s Our Spake Gone?’ project from 2019-20, the book illustrates 50 unique words particular to the Black Country. Local people share stories about how important dialect is to their sense of belonging and local identity. The book also showcases how commissioned artists responded to the theme of the project through poetry, theatre and photography.
