New Publication - Art in the Community


June saw the launch of our latest publication, together with Farnham Public Art Trust.  


One of our popular authors, Roy Waight, has cooperated with local Farnham personality Sue Farrow to produce a book putting Farnham's public art in its historical context. Those of you who have read Roy's work before will be conscious of the readability of his books, while imparting much information about our town. The sheer quantity of public art in the town is truly amazing, and the pair have found some pieces of art which will be surprise most people. The book is lavishly illustrated and has a useful map of the whereabouts of the art.   


The price of the book will be £13.99 (+ p.p if required). We hope very much that you will support this venture, copies of the book will be available later at our usual outlets.
