'An Opinionated Guide to East London' (Second edition). Text by Sonya Barber. Photography by Charlotte Schreiber, 144pp, paperback, blue foil, 161 x 112mm.
This is the second edition of our unashamedly biased, deeply opinionated guide to our local area. With over 20 new suggestions of where to eat, sleep, shop and drink (and some places taken out) this pocket-sized companion is the ultimate guide to the everchanging face of East London, filled with beautiful photography, pithy reviews and a neighbourhood map showing where each place of the 66 places is located. It’s a must for East London locals and first-time vistors alike.
Please note: this is an updated edition of our previous yellow guide book. It features over 20 new places but the majority of the content is the same.

From Blackpool to Brighton, and Barry Island to Brightlingsea, these richly-detailed photographs capture the candyfloss colours and faded nostalgia of a seaside culture that is peculiarly (yet wonderfully) British.

'The East End in Colour 1980-1990', 128pp, cloth spine, 156mm x 196mm. Edited by Chris Dorley-Brown.
Book 5 in the series 'Vintage Britain'
This book is also available in a special book + limited edition print bundle. Click here to see them.
Following our hugely popular The East End in Colour 1960-1980 by David Granick, this new book by a different photographer, Tim Brown, picks up the story in 1980 as East London enters an extraordinary decade of transformation. Focusing on the Docklands and the further reaches of the East End, Tim took these pictures on 35mm film between shifts of driving trains on London Underground's Central Line.
Tim began taking photos in 1980, around the same time that he started a 20-year stint working on London Underground. He was a Central Line train driver for 13 years and lived in East London for over 20 before moving to Essex with his wife and two children. The book features an introduction by Chris Dorley-Brown, editor of the book, and an interview between Chris and Tim.
