This book explores the corporate brand evolution of the GPO.
Styling the Post Office
Styling the Post Office

follows the extraordinarily complex evolution of the General Post Office, Royal Mail, British Telecom, and Openreach corporate identities.

At 244 glossy pages, my new book is a real fab tome, with hundreds of colour/black & white photos/illustrations and clear explanations.

Andrew Emmerson: "Extremely comprehensive, beautifully printed and excellent value for its price."

Mike Harris: "Congratulations on producing a superb history of the corporate brand across the constituent businesses."
