A1-The Great North Road. Photographs by Paul Graham. Foreword by Rupert Martin. Grey Editions, Bristol, 1983. Unpaged. Oblong quarto. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. 41 color reproductions

Paul Graham's first book, self-published in 1983, documents The Great North Road that runs the length of England 400 miles from London to Edinburgh. The route has been in use since Roman times and was once the busiest motorway in the country with an active roadside economy of shops, cafes, hotels. In the 1950s it was supplanted by the newly constructed M1 a speedier and smoother motorway for an England moving slickly into a modernity of effeciency and consumerism. Along the A1, the business and people were left to decline into grimy obscurity. Graham's subdued color photos are a mournful document of a grey nowhere land in a country moving too fast to stop for a cup of tea. Photographed with a large format camera 1981 to 1982

A Fine Copy. Shallow creases on rear wrapper.
