A 56-page annual publication for the members of a classical music society. Working with editor Tony Scotland, I have designed and typeset the publication on an annual basis. The design follows a house style that I established for the first issue, using Adobe InDesign software.

A Glimpse of Empire by Jessica Douglas-Home is the story of a young Anglo-Irish beauty’s visit to Delhi for the 1911 Royal Durbar, where a new King, George V, is to be proclaimed Emperor. For a fortnight of relentless ceremony, unheard-of extravagance and imposing military spectacle, in the setting of a vast Tented City, Lilah Wingfield meets many of the most remarkable colonial characters of the day, vying to stage the most lavish display to prove their devotion to the Raj.

Lennox & Freda by Tony Scotland is an improbable love story set in the musical avant-garde of the 1930s and '40s. It explores the contrasting backgrounds of Lennox Berkeley and Freda Bernstein to explain how their paths crossed and why marriage was the making of them. Lennox & Freda is more than a portrait of an unconventional marriage, it is a record of a generation – and a vanished way of life. Tony Scotland was for many years a familiar voice on BBC Radio Three. He is also the author of The Empty Throne – The Quest for an Imperial Heir in the People’s Republic of China (Viking, 1993).
