Thanks for posting this How.

Yes, it's almost finished now, the culmination of several years worth of photography followed by eighteen months of Photoshop work. There are some familiar views (and some not so familiar) which have undergone the Firth Photomontage treatment, over forty of them in fact, and the feedback I've had from those who have seen the work in progress has been universally positive.

Looking forward to the release date, as I gather, are quite a few people from what I've heard.

I'll post further news and updates here when there's something to report.

All the best
Andrew

I'm very pleased to announce that my new book "Ripperland" will be launched at this year's Jack the Ripper East End Conference on Saturday 5th August 2017.

I will be on hand to sign copies for those purchasing at the event, plus this will also be the date from which orders can be placed on the Mango books website.

More news on the book in due course.

All the best

Andrew

I'm saving mine for the one How advertised earlier (look edging off is done sideways quietly just like Mummy's doing)...

Despite the passage of nearly 130 years since Jack the Ripper roamed the streets of Whitechapel and Spitalfields seeking out and murdering his victims, people are still drawn to the area, heading out on walking tours that promise the ultimate “Ripper” experience. But how much is left of the London that Jack and his unfortunate victims would have known? Is there an expectation in the minds of visitors for a preserved Victorian network of streets, complete with gas lamps and dark alleyways; a theme park style “Ripperland”?

Using old images of the sites associated with the Ripper murders, and superimposing them into their modern day equivalent scenes, photographer and graphic designer Andrew Firth has created a unique visual survey of what now remains of those atmospheric Victorian streets and buildings.
The book contains over forty photomontages and over 130 colour and monochrome photographs of modern day “Ripperland” at its most atmospheric. The book also features a foreword written by Ripper tour guide and author John Bennett.

Available from Mango Books. Due 5th August 2017

I'm very pleased to announce that "Ripperland" is now virtually complete, the text has been proofread by Mark Ripper, and I'm just waiting on the foreword from John Bennett, before the whole thing goes off to be printed.

The view above of the Gunthorpe Street arch is one that didn't make the final cut of the book, but I liked it so much I thought I'd share.

All the best
Andrew

No worries How!

I will probably share a few more photos here in the next few weeks, not all them from the book mind you. I don't want to spoil any of the surprises within the book itself, but maybe a few pictures that maybe didn't make the final edit.

All the best
Andrew
