A mention of despatches

My days are now being taken up by organising the delivery of all the pre-orders for The Wainwrights in Colour Book, who ever said that I would now be able to put my feet up and go on holiday got it slightly wrong. Not that I mind, after all, it is these good folk who have helped to get the book printed and out onto the market. Despite the requests from bookshops I haven’t had time to supply the local independent stores as yet, this will hopefully happen in the early part of next week. So if you are waiting to pick up a copy at your local bookshop then you may have to be a little patient.

In the meantime I have put together a short film covering the despatch process for the book. Once again it hopefully gives you an idea on my “hands on” approach to the whole project. This has been more than a simple business scheme to me, more of a life experience, never to be repeated so the final touch of sending each copy on it’s way to the client seems only right. 


If you are one of those many people who have ordered a copy but still not received it then please be patient, orders are being processed as quickly as possible but in date order.

Thank you

    My goodness, I certainly can see the care with which you are hand-packing each precious book! Speaking as a customer with the last name “Waterhouse,” I’m wondering if, um, that list you are working from is in alphabetical order. 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment, yes, certainly is the personal touch. Don’t worry, I am processing them by date order not alphabetically. I can see that yours is due for dispatch over the weekend.

        Thank you! Just got the notification that my parcel is on its way and will arrive here in California no later than May 30. So excited!

    A beautiful book. It arrived on Saturday and what a work of art it is. This brings the Wainwrights into our living room. You must be proud of what you have achieved. We look forward to seeing you in Keswick.
