Due to the constraints of some contributors not being able to produce their content within the original timeline and Steve Thornton's photographic assignments impeding with the original production plan for the books publication date of Autumn 2018. We have sensibly moved the production back one year to 2019 to enable all involved in the production of this massive project, more time to produce the content to the extremely high quality required to make this book possible.
We are still currently working on this book and we all now feel that the extra time given will allow all to relax a little. Many have already sent in their content which enables Steve Thornton to create the individual chapters with less pressure.
