“Makers of East London captures the energy and spirit of a unique part of the capital. Evocative photography alongside insightful profiles of makers reveals hidden processes behind objects both everyday and exceptional.” Annie Warburton, Crafts Council
Bike builders, violin makers, ceramicists…East London is the creative hub of one of the world’s most dynamic cities and is now seeing a resurgence of craftspeople breathing life back into traditional disciplines. This book takes a tour of their studios and practices to see what it takes to be a maker in a world of mass production. Our largest and most ambitious book yet.

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.

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.
