A1: Portrait of a Road

By Nicholson, Jon [introduction by Nigel Richardson

London: HarperCollinsIllustrated, 2000. Running the 400-odd miles between London and Edinburgh, the A1 is Britain's backbone. This book is a photographic portrait of life on the road. Jon Nicholson's mission is to find out what makes the people living and travelling along Britain's oldest and longest highway tick. Fuelled by a combination of petrol and all-day breakfasts, his journey takes him through a land of extremes, in both culture and terrain, from the genteel to the gritty and from the rolling to the rugged. The text by acclaimed travel writer Nigel Richardson captures the road spot-on, and is the ideal introduction to Nicholson's pictures. Jon Nicholson is a documentary photographer best known for his motorsport work, most notably with Damon Hill. His pictures have been in many publications around the world, including National Geographic and the Sunday Times magazine. Writer and journalist Nigel Richardson is the author of Breakfast in Brighton and Dog Days in Soho. Since 1992 he has been on the staff of the Daily Telegraph. He lives in London and grew up just off the Great North Road in South Yorkshire. 160p. : chiefly col. ill. ; 19x23 cm. Lovely copy. [ Location: Landing Case ]. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.
