Wild About Putney is the beautiful new book by Putney photographer Andrew Wilson
Local photographer and Putney Society member Andrew Wilson has just published 'Wild About Putney' (available in the shops from 23rd November), the latest in his excellent series of local books. Sponsored by Warren’s, the Putney estate agent, the book is full of beautiful photographs, covering all aspects of Putney life and environment - the river, the embankment, street scenes, architecture, houses, pubs, schools, and even pageant. Not to mention, of course, Putney’s open spaces and wildlife.
With an introduction from another Putney Society member, Philip Evison, Wild about Putney will make an ideal Christmas present and is available to buy from Waterstones in the Exchange and other local books and gift shops. One lucky member will win a signed copy of the book (see below). Andrew has also simultaneously published Wild about Wimbledon.
Putney resident Andrew, has a background in print and publishing and is also a local business advisor. A keen photographer, he published his first book on the parks and open spaces of South West London, Wild in the City in 2009 and hasn’t looked back since. Wild about the Thames followed the year after. Wild about Putney is the 4th in his series of local books; Wild about Barnes and Wild about Kew were published in 2011.
