Illustrated Tales of Warwickshire Cover Reveal Coming Soon…

It’s not long now till Christmas 2021, and I was delighted to receive the first proof of my forthcoming book Illustrated Tales of Warwickshire, and of the cover design. I love the choice of photos for the cover, and their design and layout. I look forward to being able to share my Cover Reveal with you soon, early in the New Year 2022.

Illustrated Tales of Warwickshire is due to be released by Amberley Publishing on 15th April 2022.

But it is now on pre-order, which means you can go to many online book retailers, such as here or here to register your interest, add it to your “wishlist” and make sure of getting your copy, well before publication date.

Illustrated Tales of Warwickshire is packed with quirky and intriguing stories of ancient legends and ceremonies, folklore and folk customs, and unusual Warwickshire people. The 100 photos in the book are mainly taken by myself, and by my son Jamie Robinson and my daughter Abigail Robinson both of whom are excellent photographers besides their other talents: Jamie is a satirical blogger and aspiring screenwriter; Abigail is a filmmaker, editor and videographer.
