Formerly a student at London's Goldsmiths' College and The Royal College of Art, I am now a Television Producer and BAFTA nominated TV Director with more than twenty years experience in TV Production.

I had many Pelham Puppets as a child and re-discovered them four years ago tucked away in my loft. It then struck me, particularly with the early examples, that in terms of design and craftmanship they had great appeal.

I began photographing them at once and found them very photogenic - and so the start of a 'photographic library' began, that now stands in excess of 20000 jpgs. With more than four years of research, these books are a distillation of that library, intended for collectors and enthusiasts that share my belief that these were and are, very special toys.
