Perfect Binding: Made in Leicester


“I meant to let you know that I started reading it immediately and finished on Friday. For me it was quite unputdownable! Apart from Dave and Sandra, it wasn’t about people I have known, but it felt so authentic that I was listening to peoples’ voices and their fascinating perspective about Leicester, too. If it really is a dump (although I’m not sure if anyone actually says that, but it’s the conclusion one comes to) it has produced some surprising talent”. (Andy Wakeford)

“A quick note to say many thanks for sending the copy of Perfect Binding – it’s wonderful. I’m working my way through it but have been delighted by the quality of the design, the content – everything! It complements the recent work on Mods really well and I’m sure I’ll be coming back to it often. I’ve also dipped into the programmes about it on Resonance FM, which I need to listen to properly. Huge congratulations and thanks again”. (Colin Hyde; Unlocking Our Sound Heritage: Digitisation Hub Project Manager, University of Leicester)

“Hi William Enjoying your book very much carefully read in small chunks. Finding much synchronicity – one of my lecturers/tutor was convinced of Jungian archetypes in history and reincarnation. Where are you now Dr J L Henderson? Donated to the Resonance fundraiser as per this message link. All best”. (David William Murphy)

“Well done it’s a fine book in which you have creatively woven assorted strands from the sixties, bringing together different places and some of the characters that were around then”. (Peter Josephs)

The book is now available to buy from Housman’s on Caledonian Road and Tenderbooks on Cecil Court for £20 or from ABE books (Advanced Book Exchange).
