The Little Book of John Betjeman is a charming evocation of the late Poet Laureates life and work and was published to coincide with the centenary of his birth on 28th August 2006, an event that was widely publicised and observed worldwide.
The book is lavishly illustrated throughout (approximately 150 illustrations), in both colour and black & white, with some hitherto unpublished pictures of the poet and many very rare first editions from the authors personal collection.
Peter Gammond knew John Betjeman and the members of his circle of friends at Oxford, such as Maurice Bowra, and, as Vice-Chairman and a former Chairman of The John Betjeman Society, he is uniquely qualified to write about Britains bestloved poet of the 20th century.
This book is packaged together with the 50 minute DVD Betjemans Britain which traces his steps and words round many of the places he enjoyed and celebrated. Anyone who loves his poems will find them greatly enhanced by seeing the actual places featured in his work; the scenes being backed by readings of his poetry and prose, with occasional glimpses of the great man himself.
This is a unique and special Gift Pack that celebrates the life and works of one of Britains most loved Poets.
