Covid-19 has delayed research due to many archives being completely inaccessible for the duration, as well as distance travel being inadvisable. More practical telecom projects have been carried out during Lockdown (2020-21) with book writing on hold. It is anticipated that new publications will be ready during 2022/23.

Yellow History Series (2017-2023)
My GPO Legacy London's Trunks Tolls and Telex
Yellow Telecom History (2017-2023 series)

Illustrated with black & white photos.

     
My GPO Legacy is the intended third book in the 'My GPO Family' trilogy series. Part 1 was 'My GPO Family.' Part 2 was 'My GPO in London.' Part 3 is due to cover any remaining topical aspects. Thus this book is not expected before 2023 or later.

London's Trunks, Tolls and Telex picks up and expands the 'My GPO in London' topic for a more detailed look at switching in the capital city. This may be out early 2023, depending how quickly other writing and reformatting projects progress.


Square Formats: Premium Quality Photobooks (2019-22 series)
Styling the Post Office London's GPO Heritage  
Square Photobooks (2019-2022 series)

Typically, 60 or more colour and b&w photos in each book.


       
Styling the Post Office will study the evolution of the corporate General Post Office branding from the early mid-bronze green of Post Office Telephones through the yellow era of Post Office Telecommunications, the red of Royal Mail, and the progression of post office counters. It is hoped that this book will be published by mid-2022. Lack of access to research documents is delaying this book.

London's GPO Heritage is currently out of print. At the minimum, it needs to be completely reformatted/resized for my new printer. Extra material may be added. It could be reprinted during 2021, but other writing projects make this a low priority for now.
