Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been preparing a new book for publication on behalf of my Dad. John Knifton has been editing a commemorative volume as part of the celebrations of Nottingham High School’s 500th anniversary (the school was originally opened way back in the days of Henry VIII). All profits from this book will be donated to the school’s bursary funds, which enable gifted boys from all backgrounds to attend the school.
500 Happy Returns: Nottingham High School’s Birthday is a unique celebration of the school’s anniversary, recording the events of the day from a huge range of perspectives. A few weeks ago, on February 1st, everybody at Nottingham High School was invited to write a short description of what they had done in any given part of their day. This included all the teachers, all the support staff and all the boys, from the very youngest in Lovell House (aged 4) to the young men of Year 13 (aged 18).
We have now finally finished collating the results, which total almost 800 individual contributions. This afternoon I am very happy because I can now reveal what the cover for the book will look like. Here it is, hot off the press (well, almost. I’ve just finished working on it in Photoshop):
I’ll be publishing the volume with Amazon, and as soon as it is available for purchase I will post details of how to get a copy on this website, so please check back soon.
