Books, Books, Books

I grew up loving books. Looking at them, reading them, treasuring them, feeling them. To this day I can’t resist the feel of a beautiful hard book… not for me the convenience of E-books. I love the mystery, sensuality and intimacy of a fresh pristine hardback. And the best books of all (second place goes to Taschen whom I adore) come from Genesis – made in the UK since 1974.

A private publisher – focused on rock, photography and UK culture…. Limited, signed, beautiful works of art.

I just bought Maximum Who and The Traveling Wilbury’s yesterday – inside stones and treasures of these 2 great bands. Contributors include Peter Blake, George Martin, Ringo Starr, and Eric Clapton. Long may Genesis thrive.
