Tanners Yard Press

Tanners Yard Press is a small company in Gloucestershire publishing photographic books. To date eleven titles have been published, the most recent, Canal Pioneers, in October 2012. All the books feature the photography of Chris Morris; most of them reflect his interest in industrial history, though in the case of the Severn and Thames titles this is blended with other cultural apects of the two rivers. The first two books on Dean are now out of print.

Tanners Yard Press was conceived in 2001 as an answer to production problems with Work in the Woods at the contract publisher. The success of that book ensured that further projects would follow.

Support
The first three books were published with support from the Countryside Agency and the World Heritage Site at Blaenavon. Subsequent titles have stood on their own merits!

All the titles are available from book shops and tourist sites. They can also be ordered, post-free, direct from:

Chris Morris
The author of TYP books has been a professional photographer all his working life. On moving to Gloucestershire in 1999 he began documenting Dean's largely neglected industrial history. An exhibition of the work in Gloucester Guildhall Gallery and publication of Work in the Woods helped to generate a revived interest in the local heritage.

Chris Morris employs a strong graphic style; the use of digital techniques allows fine tuning to the images while final presentation is of conventional photo quality.
