Reading's Influential Women book cover, design by Nadja Guggi using linocuts by Martina Hildebrandt


Near the end of last year I was invited to co-author a book with Terry Dixon (of Terry's Reading Walkabouts). The book is about influential women with a connection to Reading (the town), both historic and contemporary figures. The book is published by Two Rivers Press with a publication date of 21st September 2020. Some artist friends - Martina Hildebrandt, Carole Stephens and Martin Andrews produced illustrations for the book, as did I. Neither the authors nor the illustrators are taking any payment for the work on the book - all royalties are going to Berkshire Women's Aid.
Martina's linocut illustrations feature on the cover, and you can see more on Martina's website. The book can be ordered from Two Rivers Press.
