“We like the idea of making beautiful travel books and souvenir publications that sit in people’s homes to remind them of the time they spent in some amazing part of the world.”
David’s company, Frontier Publications, has published 17 books and a stable of photographic souvenir publications on the destinations he has photographed. His flagship publications include The Pocket Guide series of Australian tourism regions, several coffee table books on Papua New Guinea, and The Gift Book series of countries in the South Pacific.
“So, you’re visiting Australia’s Red Centre and you want to know what there is to see and do. Time, money and interest are all likely to make you selective but the last thing you want to feel at the end of your adventure is that you’ve missed anything."
....and so begins The Traveller’s Guide to The Red Centre (right), a 200 page travel guide and souvenir book which will include 40 short stories and more than 100 photographs of Central Australia.
Work has begun on the fourth publication in David’s gift book series on countries of the South Pacific, this time featuring the island nation of Vanuatu.
This will be the 18th book produced by David’s publishing company, Frontier Publications.
The hard-cover coffee table book (right) will contain more than 150 of David’s favourite photographs of Vanuatu including the attractions of Efate, Tanna Island, Espiritu Santo, Pentecost Island and the Banks Islands.
The 200 page souvenir book is expected to be released early in 2023 (....or as soon as international border restrictions are lifted so I can return to complete the photography).
