Working closely with Reading's Two Rivers Press and author Dr Gillian Clark, we have designed and produced Down by the River, a fully illustrated history of the Thames and Kennet in Reading. The book was launched in the Spring at the Museum of English Rural Life. According Two Rivers Press: "The book is attractively designed, thoroughly researched, and generously provided with maps, drawings, and contemporary photographs, many not seen before."
Gillian Clark grew up in a Caversham boat-building family. As well as designing the book, Design for Print advised on editorial matters took some photographs, and supplied the printed copies. In the course of the work we discovered that Gillian Clark's father had saved David Woodward's uncle Ronald Allen from drowning.
