Client: Rufus Stone Publications
Brief: Specialist rock publisher, Rufus Stone, was producing a hand-made limited edition coffee table book featuring a collection of Nick Elliott rock photographer’s images from ten years of the legendary Cambridge Folk Festival.
An official publication authorised by the Cambridge City Council that hosts the festival, I was invited to contribute to the publication by writing the introduction for the book.
Solution: TEN – A Decade In Images was produced in two versions – a standard edition of 1,000 with a choice of cover (Joan Baez or Robert Plant) and as an ultra-limited extended Hardkase edition, limited to only 200 – featuring over 80 images of 50 performers amongst its 132 pages.
Result: These fine art books have been bought worldwide by collectors with few copies of the standard edition remaining.
