Featuring hundreds of photographs, this lavishly illustrated guide to some of the most distinguished British brands takes a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at their enduring success. Classic style and British manufacturing are both experiencing a boom in demand—driven by a desire among consumers for authentic, quality products. Britain is uniquely placed to benefit from this resurgence, given the number of heritage companies still producing at the top of their game. From the world-famous Barbour in South Shields in the north of England to John Lobb in London, many of these fine businesses remain in family ownership, protective of their traditions and justifiably proud of their products. Many are the bearers of warrants from the British Royal family and all are over 100 years old. Horst Friedrichs explores the historic places where these British brands have become some of the strongest in the world: Johnston’s of Elgin in the north of Scotland, Corgi socks in southern Wales and John Smedley in Derbyshire. By highlighting the stories of these legendary brands—both new and old, grand and humble— Friedrichs and Crompton show how relevant these companies and their traditional production techniques still are. A Very British Heritage is a must-read for anyone that appreciates well-crafted products and timeless style.

Books about advertising are, more often than not, supposed to act as sources of inspiration. Copy Paste daringly takes the opposite tack. It is not that the hoards of adverts compiled here are lacking in artistic merit. Au Contraire! The showcased advertisements have been presented at major industry conferences and have won prestigious awards. Another common trait among the campaigns that Copy Paste presents is that all of them are reproductions. Whether that is the result of deliberate plagiarism or unlucky coincidence remains an open question. Copy Paste provides the images and allows the reader to make the judgment call. A visual lesson in originality: selected campaigns possess unique hashtags that allow readers to interact with Joe la Pompe’s extensive research, cast their opinion online, and make their own judgements. Copy Paste, Joe la Pompe’s third book, campaigns for more creativity. Through over six hundred ad campaigns featuring under three hundred original concepts, the volume begs the question: coincidence, phenomenon, or shameless plagiarism? To decide, you will have to read it – at least twice. For nearly 20 years, Joe la Pompe has pursued a passion for uncovering identical adverts that flaunt identical ideas and concepts, but that originate from different countries and periods. Joe la Pompe brings them face to face in the most simple and possible striking way. Working undercover with the help of his iconic mask, today, he is the world’s best known “copycat hunter”. The French blogger is followed by advertisers from around the world who love his revelations though their admiration may swiftly change to bitterness once he catches them.
