#TheatresInDanger Book

Hi all. Right. Exciting News alert. #TheatresInDanger is my first book. Itís a 40 page collection of photographs that Iíve taken of so many of the theatres Iíve had the pleasure of working in over the last 10 years. Published next week on Wednesday December 16th (special launch price £15.95), Iíve written it specifically to support UK Theatres during this extraordinarily difficult time for the industry: all proceeds will go directly to the Theatres Trust, who do such amazing work helping our theatres to survive, and reopen, both now and in future.




I'm currently taking pre-orders on my website at www.billwardphotography.co.uk/theatresindanger : all prints will be sent off to the printers on the day of order, and copies of the book will be sent out first class from December 16th, so perfect for Xmas presents. I have detailed explanatory launch posts posted on my social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram, if you'd like a closer look...

All the photographs in the book, as well as those that I havenít been able to squeeze in (and there are many of them) are available as signed and numbered prints - again, all proceeds from print sales will go directly to the Theatres Trust.
















A huge thank you to photo journalist, Pentax Ambassador/user and editor Matty Graham whoís idea it was to make this book, for his brilliant design and extraordinary energy, and also to our publishers the Lavenham Press, for their first rate advice, expertise and know how throughout.

I would say this wouldn't I, but this really is a pretty decent cause. This has been a mighty tough year for pretty much everyone, everywhere, but if you can, do help support the arts, and all who work in them, this Xmas. Go to www.billwardphotography.co.uk/theatresindanger and follow the links.

I only ordered one to give to myself for Christmas. Looks excellent, and a great idea for a good cause.

I have ordered one for myself for Christmas - better than slippers and socks. Do we get special signed copies?

Ah thanks Nigel, Peter and Gary... very good of you... yes, can def do the signing thing... sharpie at the ready!

Thanks John for the ADAPS link... much appreciated...

Peter, all gd on the print run thus far, just depends on how much traction it gets on the publicity front... would be a nice problem to have...😉

Thanks again and best
Bill
