Message from Gresham Books Managing Director
Creating beautiful books in this digital, disposable age, is a real joy. I so remember the books I was given as a child, and at school, and believe that there is something almost sacred about the look and feel of a good book. And if that book contains things that speak to your soul…
Why not commission something really special and create memories for the next generation. I can assure you, they will be treasured long into the future, more perhaps than you can ever know.
Avid sailor, father to two grown-up daughters, former classics teacher and founder of independent schools’ publisher, Galore Park, Nick is that quintessential Englishman – a slightly eccentric visionary who drives everyone forward by the force of his enthusiasm. He’s also getting a little better at the guitar, after many years of floundering around.
Until recently Deputy Head of Benenden School, we managed to lure Debra away to join us on the eternally sunny (or so we promised) Isle of Wight as our Deputy Leader. Debra advises us on our education content and generally keeps everyone in line.
Ed is our musical genius. He plays piano, organ, guitar – well, anything you care to put in front of him, actually. He composes descants for fun, and recently wrote a Christmas Oratorio, just because he could… Ed knows more about hymnology than most people know about football, and handles the musical typesetting of our bespoke hymn books.
If Maths wasn’t your thing in school then you will love Clare. She makes sure the books balance, the tables pivot and our money is spent wisely. We’re yet to persuade her that table football is an essential office purchase, but we’ll keep trying.
Jane is the level-headed member of the team. She keeps our things in order, reminds everyone of who is doing what, and then does it herself! Well, you know what they say – if you want something done properly, do it yourself. Or, if you want something done, ask a busy person.
